Make Over

It was another one of those "Andy!" moments when I start a job and realise I've got stuck! The old pine dresser was upstairs .... the bottom of the staircase was very narrow .... thankfully he never moans!!

We bought the dresser twenty years ago.  It has been used in the dining room, the utility room, the greenhouse for a short time and then my sewing room.  It is now moving into the porch but it needed a bit of a face lift.  I used chalk furniture paint and wax.  It took three days but I'm very pleased with the end result.


  1. That looks really good. And made to measure!

    1. Yes, it took some manoeuvring in order to turn it round to fit in! Good job it worked .... can't imagine the response if I asked for help to get it back upstairs!!

  2. You did quite a good job with the chalkpaint, it looks like new and it fits perfectly in the porch!

  3. Wow - what a transformation.

  4. I love it!! I think it looks great! Afresh coat of paint was just what it needed. It's perfect in that spot.
