It's been a looong time since I have done some regular blogging so now I need to rectify that a bit.
For starters I am putting up one of the many items I have been renovating in order to get things ready for the completion of our farmhouse conversion up in Gozo. This was an old wooden chest which had ALOT of woodworm. The lid was unsalvagable so I had to make a new lid from scratch, but the rest was 'do-able' with plenty of douses of cuprinol woodworm killer, plenty of strong filler and some reinforcements here and there. A stressed effect paint job and a bit of amateur decoration (!) and it makes a great container for kids games, jigsaw puzzles, various toys etc etc which will be available for use by kids and adults when the house is rented out.
