Hello Everyone,

This last long weekend of the summer, has us driving to Blue Mountain for a couple of days of rest and relaxation before our daughter’s first day of Montessori school next Tuesday, she will be only attending 2 days a week but she is so very excited to go and be a “big girl”. I forgot to mention last Friday, that I finally have had 2 “Tech Free” weekends, and I am hoping that I can make this one at least computer and iPad free too. I would love it to be phone free too, but being away from home tends to make that aspiration a little more difficult. Our kitchen ‘remodel’, I am meaning the wall that was demolished leaving the huge hole in my ceiling, the floor to be tiled, post to be clad and island to be repaired is moving along slowly. The hole in the ceiling as been filled, the post clad and a portion of the floor tiled…..which just leaves the island to be repaired and re-surfaced, the patching of the timber floor and all the finishings like the sanding, crown moulding and painting. So, nothing really!?! Back in June I mentioned that I had purchased an antique bar cart or tea trolley, as I am layered the cart with bottles of alcohol – it’s a bar cart! I had completely forgotten to post the before and after photographs of my very light restoration using Murphy Oil Soap and Howard Restor-A-Finish which by the way is like a miracle in a bottle. Thank you, lovely Mary, for reminding me.

Happy Weekend,

Leonie xx

On My Day Of Purchase From The Beaumont Mill Antiques And Collectibles

Bar Cart After

Most Of My Restoration Was Removing The Build Up Of The 70 Plus Years Of Wax And Dirt Using Murphy Oil Soap Then Applying 2 Coats Of Mahogany Howard Restor-A-Finish With Sponge Which Seem To Erase Any Scratches And Buffing To A High Shine With A Soft Cotton Cloth
