Not usually my thing.

 Before. 
Looking a little worse for ware and bit tired.
After.
Spruced up and ready to store again.
Back to normal stitchy stuff next time, promise.
Love Fi x

Edited to add... Yes Bonzogirl, there has been some bidding at Hoppers (how did you know?) but not by me, lol. I actually can't remember choosing this cupboard or the reason why we bought it, it's been at my father-in-laws house for quite a time. If I'm honest girls, it doesn't actually fit in my house very well. I had  to walk around looking for somewhere for it to go, teehee. I've wedged it in between my two overfull bookcases in the attic for the time being and loaded it up with craft magazines and tubs full of buttons but there is a chance it might be off on its travels again as my Mum has her eye on it! 
See! I'm not really doing it justice am I? It'll just vanish under all the junk! lol.
It really needs it's own little special place.

Wow - thats a stunning transformation. I have only tackled small items just for fun. That looks like serious furniture renovation - well worth the break from sewing!!

There must be something seriously wrong with my creativity. There's no way I would have looked at the original and thought that the amazing end transformation was possible! I've got some work to do. xx Susan
