All dressed up…..

I managed to get a bargain on eBay – not always guaranteed, but in this case we needed a dresser for outside out bathroom and this one was definitely an ugly duckling but at the bargain price of £18!  Who can complain at that.

My daughter and I got stuck in with some sandpaper and elbow grease and got rid of the really ugly dark brown varnish that covered it.  After a good dust and wipe I applied a few good coats of off white to match the bathroom, replaced the hinges and there you have it – a very pretty transformation in what is called a shabby chic look.  All I am going to do in future is replace the door handles for some antique brass – perfect.

Good job girls.
