Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.

A little project I'm about to embark on:
an upgrade for my chests of drawers, I have two of these, bought cheaply from Ikea, made of pine.
I had these a full year before the awful fresh pine smell dissipated.
Let's take a look at that front left hand top corner:
you'll notice it is slightly darker. That's from a single swipe of a polish laden cloth. I'd already put a layer of the polish all over the other chest and began this one before realising I was going to have to empty and move the bookshelf sitting on top of it. So polishing this one was abandoned. The bookshelf is choc-a-block with dvds. All three shelves, double layered.
this 3cm is how small the original flat surface knobs are, I've put up with them long enough,
and they will be replaced with these not much larger 5cm knobs, with a slightly rounded surface.
a light sanding of the polished one, then a single coat of stain-and-gloss, applied with a brush, because I do like brush painting.
here is the one-coat-of-polish chest with the new knobs, so you can see the difference in colour and the difference in knobs size. Although they don't look much different here, the difference in real life is a great improvement.
my original idea was to buy gloss paint in this colour for both chests, instead, after the gloss stain is dried, I'll find (or make) satin damask table runners in this shade and lay one across each chest of drawers. Maybe.
