Luckily the lady who owned it only lived a few roads away and we promptly went to collect it!
However,It was not a little dressing table, it was HUGE with 4 drawers either side!
Never mind I thought, I will still find a place for it.Hubby and I wrestled it down the lady's stairs without damaging her wallpaper and carpet (it weighed a ton and I could see the Hubster was doubtful! We thanked the lady and wrestled it into the back of my car (which is a tiny KA) it was half in half ou!. I drove home VERY carefully!It lived in our dining room for a good few months.
Then I finally got around to painting it Old White by Annie Sloan
I decided to paint it as the top was quite scratched!
That is also Wilson's bum in the picture!
Anyhoo, it now lives in the lounge, topped with goodies I have found from local car boots, mostly costing about a £1 each, except for the lamp which we already had!
AFTEREven the Hubster has grown to like it!
I have lots of other makeovers I need to get on with but it's so breezy outdoors today, not ideal painting weather!
