Finally finished chalking painting this table, stripped, sanded, painted, sanded and then polished with bees wax! Then my best mate (husband) helped refit the enamel table top.  He also did a little timber work on the drawer, which had a hard life before we got our hands on it. Replaced the drawer pull with a vintage knob as well.

30th birthday cake, I made the one on the left and then thought it may not be big enough for 70 guest so I made a 2nd smaller cake as a spare!  Chocolate mud cake with strawberry butter cream and fresh strawberries, and chocolate ganache. Topped off with fresh tea roses from my friends garden.
