Finally Finished !!

The brown cupboards in the kitchen, hall and bathrooms have all come back from being sprayed by Classique in Designer White to match the rest of the house.We ran out over budget so the cream tiles in the bathroom and kitchen had to stay. We are very happy with the  new granite bench tops in the bathrooms and kitchen.

Found Again Treasures

SO......It's taken 7 hours to dismantle our brown kitchen to be carted away and spray painted white.
We have had to unload all the shelves and it has given me a chance to find pieces I haven't seen for years and to give them a polish bfore the cupboards come back for installation

This is my the remnants of my mother's dinner set "New Hall" Hanley Staffordshire ( my sister gave away her half to neighbours ARRRRGHH)

Lots of Royal Albert and Shelley Bone China
