Anyway, it was this cute little bureau unit with shelves, the back board was badly warped and hanging off and although the original key was in the lock it was very difficult to turn.
The first thing I did was to get out the WD40 and give it a good squirt, left it for a few minutes and hey presto! it was like new.
The back board came off easily and I was going to replace it, but in the end I was able to slide it back into its grooves and tacked in place, no problem at all.
I mixed Annie Sloan Chalk Paint French Linen with Old White 50/50 for the outside of the cabinet and the inside I painted just in the French Linen so it gives a lovely contrasting tone with the inside slightly darker. I picked out the edges on the outside with the old white and I heavily distressed the outside only, waxing with clear then dark wax.
The 2 panels on the front were crying out for something and in the end I plumped for the good old faithful sheet music which is always effective.
Although its not my favourite project to date I am pleased with the way it turned out.
Bye for now
