So Christmas with us was a bit of a stressful time with the Monkey seemingly going on hunger-strike for three weeks and then finally coming down with chickenpox. But as the New Year arrived I felt the need to complete at least one small project: freshening up a tatty old chest of drawers that lives in the Monkey's nursery. Here it is before:
Excuse the chocolate-milk-splattered Monkey!
And here it is after a coat of paint. We used a lavender satinwood for the body and tester pots of emulsion for the drawer fronts. I think it looks really cute. Now just have to pull my finger out and get a second coat of paint on, as the babe's clothes have been strewn around the room for week's now!
