The 'Kinder Surprise' Locker - £50

OK ok so the name is a little cheesy but it works!


I bought this locker because it was really sturdy and had nice, strong lines which I thought would make a great piece. So, I contemplated painting it in deep red, then navy...white..yellow and so on. I decided on grey to keep it quite masculine and because this colour would go easily in any room. However, finding the right shade of grey proved a task and I even bought a dark brown because the tin looked grey.. so after several shops, days and exchanges later I had the perfect charcoal-like shade called'herringbone' from Crown's dark elegance range. It was rich and matt and did the job nicely!

For the inside, I wanted to jazz it up a bit and so used some 'mojito' paint which I had left over from another redo. This is where I got the name from - it is yummy on the outside and has a nice surprise when you open it. I have always liked bright greens and greys together and this didn't disappoint! A new knob and few coats of wax later and she is all finished :)
