Last weekend I spent most of my time helping my granddad move his stuff to his new home not far away from the old one. The parkinson's disease is taken its toll on him and making it impossible for him to do any gardening, driving, walking the dog and such. In fact it's making life something he has to overcome most days. Anyway, his new home is a lot smaller than the old one, and that meant leaving a lot of things behind. Some of them were a little difficult to part with (for me, that is - my granddad is not too sentimental :).
One of the things that he couldn't find the room for was this lovely piece of furniture. I'm not sure what the correct term would be, since it's the kind of furniture you'd have in your bedroom 40-50 years ago. The top is a lid that holds a mirror, there are two small drawers and spare room for one's hair brush, makeup and such. Below, there are three regular drawers. Fancy, I'm telling you. It's made with palisander and he made it himself..... 'during lunch hour'... as he put it ;)
When you look up 'perfection' there ought to be a picture of this particular furniture in the dictionary. In case you don't have a dictionary, here goes.
I cleaned it and gave it a bit of teak oil. The wood thanked me for that.
