While I was waiting for the batches of biscuits to cook I rearranged some of my china. I decided to redo this old scrubbed pine dresser with pale blue and white.
There is a story behind this dresser. Over 30 years ago my DH and I were looking for an old small dresser, hopefully one where someone else had done the hard work of stripping it back to the old pine. We went into the Carlton Bazaar (will bring back memories for some of you) and described what we were after. They said they had one but it was on loan to Crawford Productions and was being used in The Sullivans. It was on a set of a farmhouse in Crete during a section regarding the Sullivan boys fighting in WWII.
They said they would ring us when Crawfords returned it, and they did. We bought it and it has stood in our family room ever since.
Are you taking part in the Friday Night Sew-In organised by Heidi at Handmade by Heidi? There are 110 people signed up so far. I love the idea that many of us are sitting and sewing at the same time. Have fun.
