Paris Chest: before and after.......



Now I happen to like this lovely old chest as it it but it wouldn't close properly and was missing part of it's latching mechanism. Also I am going to put it into my retail space to sell and not everyone likes things as old and distressed as me.....by which I don't mean I'm old and distressed....although thinking about it......anyway, moving on......here is the finished article:



refinished and with a personalised address (if you happen to live at 38 Avenue des Champs Elysee, Paris VIIIe). I fixed the closing issue and made a new latch and I love it. However, I can't keep it so into the shop it must go......another of my 'babies' goes out into the world! Take care everyone.....
