The "Granny Cabinet" is finished. Bought for $20 from an op shop in town (original post here).
Thank you Mr H who ended up completing all of the sanding and polishing for me. A Beeswax polish with lemon and orange oils blended through was used and it has restored the wood beautifully and smells lovely too. It still has a few dings but that comes with old furniture and I think also adds to its character. I am on the hunt for one more handle as there is one missing. If I don't track one down I will change all of them, still keeping with the retro theme of course! I have filled the bottom draws with my vintage and retro linens and aprons.
One thing I have realised after filling my cabinet and looking at these photos is that I perhaps have enough Crown Lynn cups and saucers. I could host a rather large gathering with what I have here.
Thankfully now that it has been filled, George no longer finds the need to climb inside behind the glass doors. He does like the fold down cupboard that now houses the teapots and he has left behind his sticky lip marks on the inside mirrored glass.......as to be expected.
So there you have it...........my granny cabinet. So happy to have it and to show you the finished result.
