Almost there ...

There have been numerous trips to the dump
with never ending bags of rubble and rubbish from the bathroom renovations ...
There has been lots of spray painting too ...
Nothing is safe when she has a can of spray paint in her hand!
She has had this old tin trunk for years.
It has been black, red, green ... 
and now - a lovely steely grey.
It is destined for the bathroom ... 
perfect as a seat and storage for their towels.
She found a couple of chairs at the dump ...
They were covered in flaky white paint,
but after a scrub with a stiff brush 
and a coat of the same steely grey paint they look as good as new!

Can't beat a bit of upcycling...especially on free stuff.

Good luck on your bathroom renovation! I know exactly how it feels. We had our bathroom done last year.

Your chairs look great!
