I have recently started restoring furniture that I have bought from eBay. It  is a cost effective, relaxing and fulfilling hobby.

The 2 pieces shown cost a total of £23.06, both are solid oak and now have pride of place in the lounge.

The coffee table was heavily scratched, and I renovated this by sanding  the top and staining it to Match the legs, then varnishing to protect it.

The chest of drawers had glitter nail varnish spilt on the top and front, and was subject to the same repair process. I am enjoying learning by doing and so could you. Perhaps I shall have to bring some pieces to crafts and.Music 2013, maybe I’ll see you there.
