Another Project to add to the list

I was thrilled to bits when hubby won this unit on Ebay.  He has taken to bidding on items that are collection only within a 25 mile radius of our home.  It is proving very lucrative, we won this item for £21.  Its in a sorry state and needs lots of love and care, but I just know once we have given it “the White Approach” treatment it will be a lovely piece of furniture.  We plan to pop it in one of the alcoves on one side of the fireplace in our living room.  Hubby is building a custom computer unit with a bookcase above in the alcove on the otherside of the fireplace.  So this lovely piece will balance it out beautifully.

I have no idea when we will find the time to renovate it, but will be sure to show you all when its complete.  Along with the living room makeover which is the last room to be completed in our home.  Just need to find somebody to make me loose covers for the sofa and new curtains and we will be done.

    What a lovely piece of furniture – I love Ebay! I have just bagged myself some mis-matching crockery, for an afternoon tea party 🙂

    What a beauty, it looks strong yet delicate at the same time. At least it's not an ugly piece to look at while it awaits 'The White Approach'. Look forward to seeing what your magic hands do with it!

    Many thanks for the comments ladies. I am going to have to seriously get my finger out and get going on the painted furniture venture now. I just walked away from Ebay yesterday after 8 years selling on there. My main source of income has now gone !!!

I'd love your comment
