Hi hey hello aloha!!
I thought I'd do a post that was a bit different today, initially this wasn't a project I planned to blog about but I was just so please with the final outcome I thought it would be a shame not to take the opportunity to ramble about it (If you're not keen on bamblings then quick look away now!!!)
I had two weeks of time to waste, I'd just finished all of my exams and was blessed with two weeks study leave (since all my exams were already finished this turned into two weeks lazy leave with the exception of this little creation).
Basically we'd had the brown cupboard shown in the 3rd picture above shoved in the garage for years, or at least since I can remember, as far as I was concerned it was a hidden dime collecting dust screaming to be made into something new and as far as my parents were concerned it was 'junk'. So as soon as I had these two weeks free I decided I was finally going to turn it into something! (I'd always planned to just never really had the time). My bedroom has always been short of a dressing table and storage space so I thought this would be the perfect substitute for the both. I sanded down the piece and gave it a double coat of primer and then simply covered it in eggshell for the soft cream textured finish coat and then waited until it was all dry to sand down in certain areas for a 'shabby chic' finish.
All in all it only really took me two days to finish baring in mind drying processes in between which meant I had the rest of the two weeks holiday to sit and look at it!
I couldn't be anymore pleased with the final outcome, it even came out better than I'd expected it to! Subsequently I'm looking forward to creating more of these beauties in the summer holidays to come!
Hope I didn't bore you all too much and why not try something like this for yourself?...
love always xoxo
