Dressers and chalk paint.

Well hi there. Its been another busy week and whenever I manage to get one or two things done off my list another 3 or 4 seem to add themselves on the end, I guess moving house is always like that and setting up a shop too just adds to it!
My little boy has been slightly run down this week so has missed some nursery in favour of cuddles and toy story! I wont tell you about the many chairs I have painted this week as frankly ,I dont think they`d interest you, but I am going to share a picture of a beautiful dresser I have bought to renovate. I am quite excited though it isnt being delivered for a couple of weeks!! Its always nice to really fallin in love with a piece and makes working on it much more fun! I love the feeling of history working on older pieces,occassionally even finding old signatures scratched on to wood or old documents in the back of drawers that have fallen down the back! I think it either excites you or it doesnt but to me its as exciting as looking at paintings in a gallery.Even Thomas hardy had a thing for the history of furniture so i`m not alone!!!
"I see the hands of the generations
That owned each shiny familiar thing
In play on its knobs and indentations,
And with its ancient fashioning"
(Thomas Hardy!)
I promise to put pictures on when its finished and let you see the after pics! Anyway I apologise for reciting poetry at you...it probably wont happen again for a few years!! No `ode to a wardrobe` coming soon hehe! Thanks for reading and do feel free to give your colour reccomendations for the dresser! XFiFi
