Small Things Inspire

I'm so pleased with this bit of furniture -
I rescued it from my MIL: it had been standing outside for ages, in all sorts of weather.
Warped, stained and very sad-looking, it was destined for the scrapheap.
But I instantly saw how useful it could be in "my space" which is morphing from study to studio.
Just the perfect height to house all my painting bits and pieces -
So after much sanding, painting and repainting, this is what it looks like -

And yes, it fully lives up to all my hopes for it.

My studio,
(LOVE that word! It makes me feel like a real artist!) inspires me to keep painting -
Yay for the long weekend: lots of time to do that.
