It has begun! If you know what it's like to renovate or extend, you'll know what we're in for! But I don't care because the end result will be worth it! David began today - destroyed the door step - what is it about men and their lust for destruction!? He went at it hammer and tongs! The window ledge is also going - that will be an interesting spectacle to observe!
Earlier this morning, he attached the handles and locks to my desk drawers - it has come up beautifully - it is still in the shed surrounded by junk, but I'll post a photo when it is "in situ" in the workroom where you will be able to see it in all it's glory! I had to buy new handles but I bought the same as the original handles to keep that look.
When sanding it down, I found this little stamp - it is an old Public Works Department piece of furniture. Those of you who are my age will remember the P.W.D. - they were responsible for making all the furniture for government departments, and, of course, the Victorian Education Department was one of those.The ladder is another passion of mine - love them! I have seven or eight assorted ladders around the house, some with teddies sitting on them, and one hanging in the kitchen used as a utensil rack. I have just finished stripping and staining the ladder in the photo - it is 4.20 metres long and will eventually hang over my sewing workbench.
Must be coffee time, if I can drag Himself away from his wreckage! (I've made blueberry muffins, so I don't think it will be too difficult!)
P.S. Window ledge gone! The muffins gave him a boost! Thought he'd better not remove any more of the timbers because they appear to be supporting the window!
