One item painted only another four to go!

 I'm very happy with how the shelves spruced up, although I must say I was surprised at how many coats of paint they needed. I think I will painting two layers of undercoat on the next item before applying the top glossy coats and see if that eliminates the third top coat. After painting I figured out that I can probably benefit by adding one or two more shelves to the unit for better organisation. It will possibly  be more cost  and time effective to buy  laminated white shelves rather that pine shelving (yay... no painting), so will check out out the prices at Bunnings as soon as I can.

Yes I'm still in the process of removing everything from my office for painting. There is stuff stacked everywhere! I simply love these vintage Globite filing boxes that I acquired from an old drapery store that was closing its doors after 75 years of trading. They were used to store singlets, and undershirts etc in various sizes, and were stacked neatly behind the counters. They still l have their original labels. I usually  have these stacked on top of the cupboards and use them to store all manner of things which now, like everything else need to reorganised. Over the years I have kept my eye out to purchase a few more, but sadly have never come across any. If you see any in your travels up for sale please let me know.

Ok, so next in line for painting is a small chest of draws with a very bad red stain.
