White Cabinet

We're back from a wonderful week away skiing and other activities. The snow was fantastic but the weather not so good. Low visibility and very cold and windy. But we all had a great time and the kids picked up skiing very quickly. I wish I'd learnt as a small child! I felt very proud watching them woosh down the mountain with no fear! 

It's back to normal here now. Kids went back to school this morning after 3 weeks holiday and they were very happy to see their lovely teachers. After doing the reading in kindergarten, I finished a little white cabinet that will be for sale in my booth. 

It is solid timber with 2 doors and a shelf and one drawer. Original hardware.  Painted white, waxed and distressed.

My heart is going out to the people of Norway as they deal with their grief. It's just not what you'd expect is it?
