Before and after: painted yellow wood chair | www.angelinthenorth.com

One of the final things we added to our new bedroom was the dressing table chair. We'd been keeping half an eye out for something that was nice and bright and would fit, when my dad dragged this old wooden chair out of a dust-filled corner of his garage. It was one my granddad had had ...
