Dear Family & Friends
Sometime ago, we bought a second hand furniture which fits in perfectly for our apartment kitchen. The size was perfect but the colour is not. We prefer old furniture because they are sturdier than the new ones sold these days. An added bonus for our choice was that: the four pieces of furniture cupboards which is equivalent to eight sections...was only 140 Euros for the lot!
|An electric sander makes work easy:)|
The restoration project is worked on by our big girl, under the supervision of her father. The furniture has to undergo a lot of sanding as we want to paint it afterwards to fit in our design concept.
|but of course, nothing beats the human touch:)|
An electric sanding machine is handy, but from time to time, hand power is also need for specific hard to get corners.

We are so blessed with teenagers who are just happy to take responsibilities. Our big girl can't wait to see the finished furniture restoration she's doing. Every step and progress is counted as reward.
|the temporary workshop is located in the front garden|
The next step after sanding is the painting job. By this time, the furniture gets a new look...just what we wanted and envisioned it to be.
|this is the last step - the painting fun|
Section by sectioned has been done and soon it will be a part of our apartment kitchen.
|it's all coming together|
There's also an armchair that we are working on for the apartment. This week, we finally managed to find sponge material for the seat...and I'm set to finish the cover etc... Not a complicated work and I'm pleased with it. I'll try to share with you the finished work next time.

It might sound that there's always a never ending work and project...but working together as a family team is something very rewarding for us. I count this a great blessing:)
|the best team project is found in the kitchen area:)|
In the kitchen...my little girl is also very happy to spent her time making these time consuming homemade wrap. After training her, she's an expert on these now. I prepare the stir fry veggie fillings, plus the sauce , and she supplies me with the crepe-like wrappers. Another family team work. Then we all enjoy it together afterward:) It always taste good like this...
I hope you enjoy your family circle and maintain unity as always...for there's nothing better than that. Wishing you all a good day:)
