Furniture Restoration

In raising our children and trying to get them to get the most out of life, my husband has always encouraged them to try and go out of their comfort zone.  He suggested that maybe we should do the same.

Despite having 2 of my 3 children very talented in the art department, art has always been a challenge to me.  So, doing something arty was definitely going out of my comfort zone.  I decided attend an evening class of furniture restoration and french polishing.  I have been doing so on and off for a couple of years.

My latest project is a small bedside cupboard purchased for £15.00 from a local charity.  From the pictures below you can see that some restoration was required for the top right hand corner.

After stripping the cupboard, repairing, and polishing we now have a finished product.

So I am now looking for the next project.  Also,  I need to ask my husband what is his project outside his “comfort zone”?
