I also decided to take the casters off my low shelves to upend them for some neater storage, you wouldn't believe how much more shelving space this seemed to create! They now work so much better for holding all my files, my most favourite books and lots of my pretty clutter that was residing on my desk. Now as well as having more space to work it feels like I have more space to breathe... it's very invigorating and the only place I want to be at the moment is there working, hence the late in the day post but kinda useful with Christmas Fairs looming... :)
After stripping back her nasty varnish to reveal the beauty in her wood veneer (I love her flames!) I just can't decide what to do with her... a glossy coat of creamy white is one possibility but that would mean hiding that gorgeous wood. I'm not sure if a clear coat of varnish would work, oil is definitely not an option as it soaks into everything else too, but maybe a wax seal is the way to go...
Any suggestions would be most welcome... !?
