BUT when I went to collect it, the chap picked it up and sticking out the bottom was a potty, I had only gone and bought a commode! I really went off it at this stage and didn't want to bring it home but a bid is a legally binding contract so off in the van it went. This is what it looked like
I got my Laura Ashley eggshell paint out, covered a new seat pad, threw the offending potty in the bin (I might regret this rash act in later life!) and hey presto, a finished garden chair but I have had to wait until this week for the sunshine. (PS. I made the cushion as well)
When I told our friends in the pub about my purchase, there was much leg pulling that I could leave it in my work van and I would have a en-suite van!! Least it made everyone laugh.
I will share photos of the restored linen bin in my next blog.
