How Old Is Your Boiler?

Spring cleaning time means only thing: a big overhaul of everything you’ve thrown in the cupboard by the bathroom since last year. And while you’ll soon be heading to a local charity or vintage shop to get rid of those summer shorts you’ll never wear again, some old towels that have seen a better day or those bed sheets that got mixed up in a colour watch. it might be worth your time to actually empty the cupboard and have a look at the big white boiler staring you right in the face that has been crying out for attention.

Are they on a rail? Are they in a cabinet? What does the display itself look like?

You might be asking why we’re asking these slightly off questions. Well there’s a simple reason why.

Take a look at these examples of wood looking old and good on the high street. Continue reading
