This lovely bureaux needed a bit of help to shine.
this is her now
Below is how she use to look.
The top was ruined from some pieces of paper that had been left to soak wet clear into the finish
and two wheels were missing.. so she stood like some say I do... with a leen to the side! ....
Get it? Eileen.... yeah I know. I get it all the time. Dopey joke. :)
That's why you see books propping up her front feet.
And the fruit stand was a side of the road save, I thought she was a farmhouse cutie patutie the minute I saw her, all upside down, legs outstretched . Her muffled cry for help.
I think with a generous helping of Annie Sloan grey, she worked out to be the perfect little beachy display stand.
