Yes patty though i thought i had said, the ole memory is not the best lol. Thank you for all the hints and tips as i would have just painted without primer or undercoat. Its quite tiny inside and the previous owner has papered all of it with old paper. Inside some of the units there was little bits of newspaper folded for paperwork, i have kept them to check and if lucky maybe find a date on the small clippings as curious as to when they made it

You picked this up BEFORE christmas!!... goodness me, you have kept that very quiet, it's a wonder you haven't burst at the seams!

Yes, it will look very cute. It's a good one to try some paint effects on. Remember to give it a good base coat of undercoat/primer first. Especially if you are going to paint it with match pots because match pots are not like real paint and it will need sealing with some mat varnish after.

P.S. Dulux match pots are three for £1 at the moment!

Where, Patty?
