It started with a box from a newly purchased air conditioning unit - donated to me by a very sweet gentleman who will remain nameless :o). And he offered to turn it into an authentic sailing ship, complete with head sail, main sail, and crows nest. With anchor and port holes and cannons to boot! WOW! This is going to be amazing I thought. So, I accepted his kind offer and we set out to build the ship!
And I built the treasure chest from a large box and some cardboard which I curved over the top to make the lid. I painted it mission brown. Unfortunately I didn't get a snap of the chest .... It seriously was the best and largest treasure chest full of money - coins and notes - and jewellery and stash's of all sorts! It had real brass latches and a key lock, it had wear and tear as if it had been stored in the depths of an old pirate ship, hidden away underneath the galley, stashed under the boxes of rum!
