A HUGE Relief!
With any major DIY project there is a downside - when indeed we have to de-clutter and find homes for our posessions which no longer fit into the larger scale of the picture - as was the case of my beloved dresser. It is in fact an original linen press and I had the drawers made to match. When we first moved here, our neighbour, Alice gave me the top - she kept the dog food in it, the doors covered in newspaper. We had it stripped and it sat on top of the drawers in our kitchen. Whilst our house is not small, it simply wasn't big enough to house this and give it it's true glory.
I knew if it went to the salerooms it would not fetch it's true price, so today I contacted my good friend Phil at Eskdale Antiques. This is where we had our kitchen cupboards made. Phil has agreed to sell this for us - people visit his shop for good pine furniture and are people who would see the beauty of such a treasured item! Yes, a huge relief.
Now - on with the preparations - "Lead on MacDuff!"
