This is a long story but so cool.
Our neighbours put this dresser out when it was verge side collection time minus the glass. I loved it put wasn’t going to take it because I wasn’t sure we had a spot for it. My friend was over and she convinced me we needed it and suggested it would fit in the bathroom. So she and Damian loaded onto the trailer to bring it to our house because I was quite pregnant with Julian so shouldn’t lift things.
Months later one of my neighbour’s sons recognised my friend as he goes to the same school as my friend’s son and he said to his mum “that’s the lady who took our dresser”. So my neighbour approached my friend and said “I have the lead lights to go in the dresser if you want them.” My friend said “no it’s not me that has it it’s Emily who’s just a few doors down from you.!” Of course when I heard I said yes please to the lead lights and after over a year with no glass my lovely neighbour brought the lead lights over. They are so much more beautiful than I imagined. I can’t believe they were giving this away and that we got it for free. And it’s great storage for towels and china tea cups.
It's all done... finito 🙌🏻👷🏽♀️ Finally have a piece of furniture in my own place that I can say I made with hours of sanding by hand, staining and painting✨
Now to enjoy all the banter, too many drinks and all the foods with friends and family 🍕🌮🎂🥂
