As I went about its makeover we got well acquainted she and I. Every time I opened one of the drawers I got a waft of apple and spice from candles long since removed. The scent reminded me of Christmas and sent my mind down memory lane as I went about my work. I decided she needed a name and so I called her Old Violet, after the paint color I used on her interior.
This is what she looked like when I got her. Like any 70-year-old gal she had a few scars and was showing her age. A testament that she lived life to the fullest!
You can see from the photos below she needed a lot of TLC...
But before I get to that, how many sugar lumps do you take in your tea?
UPDATE: August 20, 2015
Old Violet and I got reacquainted again recently when I tweaked her just a little. You can see that transformation in my Sideboard ReDo post.
