Cabinet and gift from my dad

Finally I have found the time and pleasure to do some mini-ing again. I have painted and changed this cabinet to transform it into an aged one. I could not resist to put some things into the cabinet to see what it would look like :-)

A while ago my dad made this antique washing-machine for me. Look how beautiful he made it! It has to go into my thirties house.

It really works, you can turn the wheel and the washer will turn the laundry around. It still has to be aged with some wood-stain.

And finally I want to welcome two more followers:

I hope you will enjoy following my blog.

  25. Hi Laura, Very nice washing machine... and a clever Dad - no doubt he is well appreciated.
    The cabinet looks very well painted white and a very nice collection of porcelain.

    Thank you for taking time to put up the tutorial for the lavender last October. I have been looking for a simple way to make large quantities... so this weekend will try and find the flower soft. I see on the web there is a superfine one as well. Not sure which you used.
    Regards Janine
