Transformed

It is interesting that I am posting this just after completing the series on frugality.

Here is a large chest of drawers that we bought a couple of years ago with a view to them being restored.

Chest of drawers

GMan has done a couple of pieces but this was not in good structural condition so we decided to take it to a professional.  Hans from Montville Joinery did an amazing job and this is the result.

Apologies for the dark photo but I think you will get the idea.

All in all, I think it was definitely worthwhile as this beautiful red cedar chest of drawers has a new lease of life and will be cherished for many more years.  Even though we did not do the actual restoration, there is an enormous degree of satisfaction in finding an old, neglected piece of furniture and seeing it brought back to life as a functioning item.
