Elbow grease

Before After This was, and is, the kitchen in my parents’ house. It’s amazing what a little patience and some elbow grease can produce. Tip o’ the hat to my Mum who, in her retirement, sanded down all the wood you see in the photos. My Dad was responsible for (still) going to work, and painting after hours. Great job!
