Managed to find a pic of the dresser


This is the dresser I got from ebay and this is the picture they used to display the dresser for sale - it looks like its the light oak finish that is i the shops now rather than the oak varnished piece it actually is! Right back to work - just had a break to eat - we are putting up dado rail in the hall up the stairs etc. We have been going since 9.30am - its 2pm and are just about to put the long piece up the stairs - we have spent hours measuring and making angles on the wall! We will get there and it will be worth it! we should have bought an extra length for mock ups of angles - I bet we dont have enough now - saying that it is looking really good up to now.

Hi Catherine

I can't believe I haven't been back to your blog since you completed your purchase. What a lot I've had to catch up on, but how exciting (and expensive) it all is.

Glad it's all going well, even if you have found a few "unexpecteds"!

Still a very nice dresser though, just a bit more work than expected! x

Oh sorry you've been stuck inside. Not fair is it but the pay off is having to run round after toddlers all day! On the canal view cottage, not sure of any on our stretch, the Cauldon canal isn't very long, but have a look at the British Waterways website. They're into tourism and development now so may have some links etc. Or have a look at this in Berkshire, looks idyllic! http://www.canalsidecottage.com/
