How it looked when we got it home..not a complete bed but we only wanted another bench back or a bed head not sure yet what it will be transformed into

I brushed and hoovered it first covered in cobwebs white damp marks years of dirt and wax so used my nail..yucky but the best thing for the job and a plastic fork to scrape off the grunge 

The details came up well with wire wool and a final wipe this middle section needs attaching again

large middle panels are only veneer and starting to break up in areas and there is a burn mark on the lower section on the left you can see but giving it a paint finish so all will be covered

Real pleased with how it looked at the end of the day though especially for just one pound!! lol
Don't you just love a bargain?


  1. Omg, what a bargain can't wait to see the finished result. Have a fabulous Easter weekend.
