Look at the sorry state of my old sideboard.. Used for many things in it’s time, sewing table, computer desk, keeper of ‘stuff’, it had seen better days and was scraped up and scruffy.
I’d tried woodstains, and similar colour paints but with it being a laquer type finish, where it was scratched you could see the dip in the surface. I had to face it, I was going to have to sand it down and start again. Have I mentioned how much I dislike sanding? Grr.
But look, look! A few coats of white paint, a couple of bits of wallpaper and it’s like new again, yay 😀
