John and I love nothing better than creating new products and playing around with different ideas in the workshop. A few weeks ago we had a delivery of quite a few metal legged school desks as pictured below. We wanted to try and do something a bit different with some of them and wondered how we could repurpose them into something else.

It's always exciting when a new idea pops into your mind and you can't wait to set about turning it into an actual product. This is exactly what happened when we spotted the enamel pots on one of our antique fair hunts. I can't actually take the credit for the idea, it was John who saw the pots and immediately thought something interesting could be done with them.
