Just a quick update on my plan chest project.

I know I said I wasn’t going to mess about with it, but the more I got to tightening joints and replacing drawer pulls the more it became obvious that the whole thing needed a bit of work.

In fact, there are sections of woodwork that are almost entirely made of wood putty, but you can’t quite tell (unless you’ve a good eye for fingerprints).

I painted it Bone China Blue (because we had heaps of it left and  it makes me ineffably happy).

I have a few shelves still to put up and possibly a bookcase to find but I’m really starting to feel at home in my wee Hovel.
