At Canberra Quilters we have two big heavy boxes, built over 10 years ago, which people stand on to hold the quilts. They were painted white but looked very scuffed and tired, so Wilma and I took one each to paint and decorate. It's our final President/Vice-president challenge - but also farewell gift to CQ as we have both resigned from the committee.
I think Wilma is at an advantage though - she has children!
I painted the whole box Patriot Blue (it is no accident that my spare room was painted the same colour on the same day...), designed a 9-patch quilt block on the top, and painted applique designs by Cathy Stevenson on the front and back of the box.
Unless there is housepaint and a wall involved, I do not consider myself a painter. But I kinda like how this turned out.
