Hoe rooier hoe mooier    (Red is best)
Mr D found this old and very dirty bedside cabinet at our local secondhand shop.  We took it apart and started sanding it down with medium sandpaper, so that paint will stick to the surface. 

after 3 coats of Plascon PVA paint (hot-n-spicy) , what a facelift !
Now I used a soft cloth and Winsor & Newton's Oil Colour (Burnt Umber) and gave the hole cabinet a rub over,especially in the corners and ridges.  As you can see the colour has gone to a nice darker red not so bright,  moved it in to my teenage son's bedroom.

Very happy with the outcome don't you think?
