I've been grounded at the moment not allowed to work as I have stitches in my face! Oooh err, had to have a lesion removed which looks dramatic so I am telling everyone that I have had half a face lift and when I have saved up enough money will get the other side done! Hee Hee.
Sooo to cheer myself up bought a Trylko cotton set of drawers off Ebay to go with my Sylko drawers.
The Trylko box was a bit chipped so spent yesterday trying to mix paint to match the purple paint, easier said that done. Got as near as I could and touched up all the white chips which made it look tidier.
To give it a nice sheen polished it with some beeswax. Not sure if the purple colour is original, I suspect not as its quite rough and there is no logo on the top but it goes well with the orange drawer front.
Its missing a handle so am on the search for a replacement. Wondering if I could get a replacement 3D printed will have to explore this option.
So here is my trio of vintage drawers

Not sure if I will be able to use all the reels of threads but will have years of pleasure just looking at them!
