Singer Cabinet Inside

So here we are; the singer cabinet in all its glory before I went to business on it with the sander, I was really surprised at how easy it was to get this cabinet looking decent, I used a fine sandpaper on the sander and after I sanded all of it I wiped it down with a cloth with some old English almond oil.



No more flaky varnish, nice and smooth.

The mug rings have gone!!!!

I was really worried about getting the sander on this cabinet, but what did I have to lose, it looked pretty nasty so I thought I would give it a go, I am so glad it did, as it turned out so much better than I thought it would. Tommorow all being well I will share the outside of the cabinet legs and all.

Working on the Singer Cabinet

It was a lovely sunny day sunday so I decided to have a go at trying to do something with the singer cabinet! It is in rough shape but I am hoping with some elbow grease, hard work and time I will be able to improve her looks. I have started sanding the whole cabinet to get rid of the flaky varnish. It has made a big improvement so far, will share some pics soon.

HI Bloggers,
Yep, I have been MIA for a while now, well lots has been happening in our household.

I have had flu for a week so have been really ill with that and I am slowly recovering, it is going round my neck of the woods like wild fire.

To add to that the house is going up for sale and we are moving! (once the house sells) Minneapolis here I come! I am excited but at the same time sad too to be moving away from here, I love the home that I currently live in. So if I do not blog in the next few weeks or even months, it is because I am cleaning, decluttering and arranging the house for someone to come and love it as much as I do and hope they buy it. Maybe I will get some crafting done that I can share with you, but at the moment I do not have a minute to spare.

Well the boys went back to school today, so I am free!!! I just made a loaf of bread and then I am off to the quilting club for some much needed catch up. Maybe one day I will get my 1st quilt finished. I leave you with pics of the bread I baked.
