Progress and catch-up

Standard

First

Apologies all round, I forgot to post the photo with the donkey coloured woodwork earlier today, so here it is.

Bit pinky but I’d call it donkey coloured I think

Evening’s progress

Have separated the two halves of the dresser and removed the whole of the jutting work surface that was there, sticking out at the sides – it was like the filling overhanging the edges of a sandwich – and I think the overall shape looks better for it now I’ve stuck the top and bottom back together.

Back together again with the ‘sandwich filling’ removed.

It shouldn’t have those raised legs but I’m going to leave them I think.

Still as rough as … well a rough thing – but hope can not only smooth down the door but get the floppy plastic to stick on the other side

Also decided not to cover over the existing panelled cupboard doors but have removed the round knobs and have worked on the cardboard new doors for the top, trying out the frosted glass and have generally been rubbing down and first coat painting up here and there.

Will work on the roughness of these doors but if can’t get this version to look better will probably start them again.

  1. I so enjoy your blog and your predicaments. If it’s any consolation, I’ve been working on a half scale “renovation” and have changed the wallpaper so many times that the walls are now thicker than the door frame.

  2. Now I get it; Thanks for clarifying the “donkey color”, I’d thought it referred to the carpet not the wood.
    Also like the refining of the hutch unit. The glass inserts will be right on point!

    • Yes, sorry about that all – no wonder it made no sense without the photo. Thos doors to the cupboard a re looking a little better now with a slight outward bevel round the glass cut out bit and a couple of layers of matt varnish on them so might be using it. As the fridge I made is rough and ready in the painting department too they’ll go together 😉
