I love this because it gives you an idea of what you can do even with an old piece of furniture.

This is called a Jobson Dresser...not sure what that is exactly, probably the manufacturer of it, but you can do great things with any old piece of furniture.

I've sanded and painted chairs, dressers, chests of drawers and beds in the past, just to give them a "lift". I've even painted the entire interior of our house. Or should I say I painted the ceilings and walls and left the archs and skirting boards to the pro's.

Delicate, intricate paint work is not one of my finer skills.

I really like painting though. I love the transformation. I love new plaster and watching all the patches and imperfections become one solid, white mass.

Love it!

There is a downside though. Whenever I've been painting the ceilings I tend to dream I'm still doing it...rolling away in my sleep...and oh boy. My arms!
