Hi all, well today my daughter passed her driving test - she has taken Ross out for a drive and a meal! Well done ........
The dresser - well after all the hype this is the first thing I have won on ebay that I have been disappointed with. I know I am intending to paint it but there are loads more scratches on it than were mentioned in the ad. However I fawned over it when they came on Saturday - as you do. The thing is in the picture I was expecting a fairly modern looking oak dresser like you see in the shops at the moment. It is actually the type that my parents have in the their house. Its OK but just not what I expected still never mind its packed with loads of stuff and will be painted one weekend in Summer. I was intending to take off the middle glass door so I had some open space but because it has two long shelves inside that wont be possible - still I have my wooden bargain knobs (ebay 1.99 for 8 tho I need 9!) mahogany to stain like the Smallbone kitchens or paint -we'll see.
Can't post my dresser pic from ebay as Isaved it in Word. Daughter just came back on a total high - she and Ross have been looking at moving out and his boss has offered them a place to rent about 11 miles from here - they hav been sat with us working out how much money it will cost to live together - she came back down to earth with a bit of a bump! Still I reckon they would manage. Hmm I won't be able to persuade Alan to extend now.................I must come back tomorrow and post the jumble pics and some I took the other of the dresser. Night night
Whoops nearly forgot we are now on the eau de nil match pot from LA we need the pale one I think but they didn't have any! I will get this hall and stairs painted eventually - in the time I have taken Alan has been concentrating on the garden - he has done loads and all I do is sit with the paintcards and tell him where to plant stuff we brought with us - its looking good.
