I've been keeping myself busy getting a few things done around the house.
The mirror and the decorative side panels from that old wardrobe have been sanded back and given a few coats of Danish oil...and I have to say they look and feel fabulous. More on them later.
I've also spent some time painting an old hall table
It's been handed down and around a number of times, ending up with me about ten years ago.
.I don't know what it was coated in but it was all flaky and awful and had a terrible smell when it got wet. So it was time for a spruce-up
First, a really good sand and then a coat of tinted undercoat
Then the first top coat
The sheen on it is lovely, considering I used ordinary low sheen wall paint. It's the same paint/colour I used on an old chest of drawers and my pine filing cabinet.
Once the paint is cured I'll put the new handles on
I got a bit carried away and even gave my kitchen stool the once over
Although to be honest, it needs another coat.
