At the weekend I went to go and buy my latest ebay bargain: £30 for this corner cupboard, described as a Rich dark wood glazed corner cupboard .
I was rather hoping it would be nice wood, but thought that if it weren’t, I would just paint it.

As we picked it up, I realised it was an oak cupboard – yippee! I sanded it down today and painted the inside, and what a result! I am really pleased with it. It is ready to go onto the wall tomorrow.

Tom, my builder, was amazed at the transformation. “I didn’t want to say anything before, but I did think it was quite ugly. But I think it has turned out lovely – don’t paint it!”

I think it is the best £30 I have spent in a while ….

PS: my hands are now in such a bad state from the sandpaper!
