A little bit of DIY furniture restoration to raise my spirits...

Following my last post of doom and gloom I thought I would show you what my first project of the Summer Holidays has looked like... I have an old Welsh Dresser in my kitchen diner. I decided, last week, over a glass of wine on my bench with my bench mate, that it needed updating.




Inspired by the work of Razmataz I decided to sand it down, paint it and put on new knobs...









And I did.



So ... here is my lovely new lap top on my kitchen table with a view of m'new Welsh Dresser...

You did a good job on that. Got me thinking about something that I need to do here.

It looks gorgeous. And it looks like you got it done right the first time, unlike my 5 tries.

It really brightens up that space.

Ha! If I post something gloomy on my blog, I always want to follow up by posting something else. And right away. So the gloomy post isn't at the top.

Anyway, I'm so impressed! I have never attempted a restoration project like yours. Just wow.

Looks much better. And your laptop sets it off beautifully.
