All getting abit boring now I know....



Afternoon, hope all is well, just thought I'd blog this before it goes off into no-mans land...
Boring..!!!!!!...just a tad, this is the last one like this for a while..lol
This little set is nearly fifty years old, it was one of the last gifts my grandmother...Lily...bought before she passed, it has been used for all my jewellery since and it was needing a change so this is it..
I painted it before, this is the start to strip down, you know the drill..
First coat on....
Once I'd stripped the drawers i gave them a coat of dark wax finish, and waxed the drawers too with clear wax....
So another year or two and then change again, the chalk paint was a great buy from Aldi, and it's cracking stuff...
Thanks for your visit....
