Finished



I was rather fond of my tatty old pine dresser with the jumble of blue and yellow crockery and other stuff accumulated over the years.  But after seventeen years it was time for a change and I have to say I’m delighted with the result.  Paul is far better at wielding a paintbrush than me so I was very happy to delegate this project!




I helped by getting  more goodies from the garden

  2. Very good, beautifully staged with 'new' china. Do you let Paul 'out' for work locally?????

  3. Well done to Paul! Surely he deserves more rations this weekend and more exercise time in the yard.

    1. It's looks pretty good against the stone walls, the photo makes the stone look paler than it actually is. The red is also picked up in the pattern on the curtains on the opposite wall. I know what you mean though.
