We recently received some Paint by Conran samples to test out.
We were mulling over what to do with them when we spied this vintage Bristol Maid hospital locker at auction.
We often leave such pieces untouched, but the paintwork on this one was a bit the worse for wear, so we decided to do a bit of refurbishment.
There were five sample paints and five compartments – it was meant to be!
So it was out with the razor blade & sandpaper – preparation is everything!
The Paint by Conran range is inspired by British plants and landscapes and are grouped into five collections: Kitchen Garden, Cottage Garden, Harvest, Highland and Orchard. The paints we chose were all in the green/yellow colourway and are from across the collections.
The locker is perfect for the bathroom to house first aid items, medicines or toiletries.
The new paintwork has given it a real lift…
…and it’s ready for a new life off the ward!
