Bought this also. Spent a few days fixing runners and sanding off old paint.

Quite a transformation and I’ll bet it looks even better than when it was new. Great work. I agree that the finish is everything, but I just can’t learn to love doing the work. I can’t help thinking ‘sticky, messy, and smelly’ A very bad attitude for any woodworker. I probably need the help of a woodworking psychiatrist to overcome my phobia.

What a nice choice of colors! My little princess has also name Harriet.
Struggling at the moment with similar project, but outcome will be certainly not so brilliant.
