Furniture Restoration....

And so to the real business of the day - we have spent the day sanding back all of our old pine bedroom furniture and giving it all a new lease of life.

My philosphy is if it ain't broke don't fix it - and these cupboards are absolutely fab they are just a bit dated.

And so, Paul set to work with his trusty sanding machine, and I with my paintbrush and roller followed by a pot of wax.

In my opinion they look fab and only cost the price of a new sponge roller, a tin of paint, and a tub of brushing wax!

Once I've fitted the final 2 drawer knobs we're back in business!

Thanks - amazing what you can do on a sunny afternoon in |Cornwall if you have the time isn't it. We even managed to get a bit of a suntan.
