Mini Van Door

Some creations make themselves.  When we acquired a pair of old, dull, rusty blue doors from a vintage Mini van, they didn’t look like much.  We had much debate about how to paint them and had more than one idea around the Italian job….”you’re only supposed to blow the …..”.  But as soon as Caroline started to flat off the paint a story was revealed.  It was the story that the Mini Van was once red…(or is that oxide?).  Then it went grey.  Then yellow.  Then orange.  And finally blue.  We decided to wire brush off the loose rust and reveal small sections of the story – we especially liked the runs in the paint, which sanded back as lovely squiggly lines!  We even left the 50 sticker on it. And then we applied four heavy clear coats on top to give it a boiled sweet shine. It makes a beautiful wall hanging – we have even fitted a small light where the number plates light is.  The door is available to buy – enquiry via caroline.jaine@gmail.com.  We aren’t sure what we will do with door number 2 yet …watch this space.

 

Morris Minor

Recently rescued a Morris Minor 1000 bonnet from a lockup in Gloucester.  Several months later we have transformed her into an amazing homage to the British classic.
