Restoration Complete

Well we finally completed the restoration of my grandmothers dressing table.  The delay wasn't in the amount of work it took it was just that other things have taken priority over the last couple of months.

I posted the original photos in this blog on the 2nd of October.

Here is one of the photos I posted but to see them all click on the link above.

And this is the finished product.   It turned out exactly the way I had pictured it in my mind.  I knew we wouldn't get rid of all of the green as the silky oak absorbed the colour into it's grain.  I like that the green lives on in a more subtle way..................

I'm very pleased with the end result.


  1. This dressing table looks lovely, it has turned out well hasn't it? We have one similar waiting for some TLC, hopefully we will get to it soon :)

  2. Thanks Tania. I'd love to see some pictures of yours when you get your project underway :)
