First project started it all...

When our only daughter turned 18 we wanted to give her a gift of substance so my husband & I decided on a piece of antique furniture. And what better piece for a girl in her late teens' than a dressing table!

We brought her this antique mahogany dressing table and a chair from two seperate people, but I think they were meant to be together. The dresser was in desperate need of stripping, which we did by hand using different grades of sandpaper. A final coating of oil finished it off spectacularly. The chair I reupholstered in a lovely self-patterned fabric in a deep red/pink.



It was a real shame we never took before photos of this...
