Apologies all round, I forgot to post the photo with the donkey coloured woodwork earlier today, so here it is.
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.
It shouldn’t have those raised legs but I’m going to leave them I think.
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.
