Tad-Dah the drawers reveal

Tad-Dah The drawers

Here are the drawers with two coats of paint, Farrow and bBall Dimity.  The castors and the handles cleaned of paint. Who paints things without taking the handles off ?.

I wont use this particular paint again I really don't like it, I much prefer a chalk paint but that was all I had in.

I needed a new lamp shade as the the one I did a few years ago was looking a little tatty. So I took two napkins a little glue and Tad-dah 


Then I had to nip out and look what I found on the road. It even has it's original Bakelite handles. I have just given it it's first coat of Farrow and Balls Dimity.
