Spotted this lovely beast driving home.



Now I couldn't very well leave it to it's fate. So home it came with me.
But it was in really rough condition. Some borers had even had a go at it.
But after a nice clean. And I mean a really good clean. This actually took a couple of weeks and a lot of gumption.



It has a new home (^^)

Cheers! (^▽^)
The effort was definitely worth it. Not only the actual dresser but now I even have some new skills I can put to use.
