Dresser

Even though the website isn’t functioning properly yet I can still blog away to my heart’s content.  I have been busy working in my very cold garage, but at least I don’t get rained on (as long as the rain is straight down).  Also, the Ebay shop is doing quite well and I’ve sold a couple of things over the past 2 weeks.  There are lots more items on my Ebay shop so please go and check it out and see if there is anything there that takes your fancy.

I recently finished these three pieces that I had in the go.  These are the before pictures…

 

This table was made by my brother at school 40 years ago.

This dresser has a back/top that I found at the Lincolnshire Showground.

The dresser was painted in 1829 Craig and Rose Pale Oak and waxed with Jacobean oak.

This was painted in a colour I mixed from two 1829 Craig and Rose paints. Clear wax.

So as you can see with a bit of time and effort you can take tired pieces of furniture and make them look like new again.
