I'm really into up-cycling old furniture, I love pieces from the 1960's/70's and a couple of months ago I picked up 1960's wooden dresser from my local antique market for £50. It was love at first sight. I really like it's dainty size and shape.
Thankfully we had a very dry summer as I knew this would take me some time to paint. Over three days I had it sat on my deck in my garden while I gave it a very light sanding, then two coats of undercoat and three coats of a white satin paint. The cubby holes were the most time consuming, but I persevered with it as I knew it would look fabulous when finished. I also wanted to keep the handles in their original colour so I had to paint around these areas with an extra steady hand.
