Up-cycling the shoebox with seat.

It's up-cycling Tuesday today I show you my shoebox. 
This shoebox has been in my life since I was about 4 years old I would say. It was my Mothers but when they moved houses 11 or so years ago the shoebox was left in the dining room corner & used as toy storage, board games mostly. 

I had so much fun up-cycling this. 
I sanded it briefly then used Annie Sloan old white, I used three layers of it. 
Let it try then waxed it.
I felt the cushion looked a bit dated so used hessian fabric to recover it.

It probably took me a day to finish it fully. 
I'm so happy with the way it looks now. 

I wonder what I'll up cycle next.
