Moving and a bit of furniture revamp

We recently moved home and one always views your furniture a bit differently when it sits there on a parking lot/pavement ready to be hauled into a big truck. Tired looking is just not the word….

A week before the big move I got a bee in my bonnet about sanding and revamping the look of my server/sideboard which I intended doing a long time ago but obviously never got around to.  I am all into the French look but I have no French furniture and with no intention of replacing big items, I shall make do with what I have.

I wish I had the know-how and time capacity to attempt big jobs myself but alas….. , even the small ones I want to do gets lost in time. I still wish I could do carpentry, of any sort, but this time I relied on a good reference and got a guy with magical carpentry skills to do the sanding on short notice and before the schlep of moving 11 floors up into a building with a heavenly view. He kindly sent me two pics of the work in progress.

Well, he did it and he did it right and now I want to have everything in sight sanded. Maybe a sanding machine doohdah thingy for my looming birthday, who knows? (Group eye-roll I know!)

I am very chuffed with the result.

Magical.
