This was left to a lady by her grandmother and had great sentimental value.it was very old.  However is had a heavy dark stain and smelt very strongly of tobacco etc as has been in a smoking household. I stripped this back and mixed GF Driftwood with one part Seagull Grey to create this really beautifull Grey colour which really made this piece sing again. 

The lady lies it and it is now used daily.
