Default Refurbished Pine Dresser

Hello JTers, I was very very lucky to get this off a kind lady from Courtown as I put an ad in the wanted section for a Pine Dresser. I couldnt believe my luck when I was contacted by the lady offering it too me.
When my husband saw it his first thoughts were "Make good fire wood"!!!!
Shock, Horror, I told him to try and see past the state it was in, and what a beautiful piece it could be... he still wouldnt accept that!! but he is a man.
So, to work I went stripping, stripping, and more stripping! no I mean the dresser. This had been hand made and quite a good job was done on it too. Who ever made it, well done.

Blimey, took ages to sort that picture out!! anyhow, as you can see this is the base part, I had to strip off all the emulsion paint that was put on it, which was a job! but patience what was needed..

This is top part, more stripping needed... all great fun though. We took the fret part off as part in the middle was broken. Good job I have a big kitchen in the cottage!

Hubby got involved here, put new piece along top, and cut out a new fret for it.
Stuck with wood glue, not a good picture sorry, Look at the bloody state of my kitchen floor!! :)

coming on nicely, all painted and new back on it, and put together.. Oh, and put my first ornament on it, it is a metal duck!! got it at the market last week for 2 I thought it was unusual.
I think the new fret looks nice not bad for the old man!! what do you think?
