When painting and selling upcycled furniture in western Canada, I was always looking for smaller items that would be easier to transport and display, and attractive for a smaller wallet. One of the ideas I came up with were these wooden boxes. A friend of mine, Ted Martin from Pitt Meadows in the Fraser Valley, made MDF boxes with lids for me which I then painted, using a masking technique. These colourful functional items proved quite popular.
