Last week, Lidl supermarkets were selling little pine footstools for £2.99, so we bought one for the boat and I've been painting it up. Umpteen coats of primer and laquer later, here it is.
Actually the photo doesn't do it justice as the top looks a lot better in real life. The colours haven't come out too well in the photo. The green on the top is really the same colour as that underneath (British Racing Green in fact) and the blue diamonds on top are the same colour as the retaining peg on the side. Use your imagination. Anyway, not a bad little stool for three quid and a drop of paint.
