Madeover with love

15 Nov

I have been getting into the makeover spirit lately. After months of the Husbands incessant nagging about my grandmas low boy taking up precious space in the garage I finally decided on a colour to paint it and bought some beautiful new knobs for the drawers and fixed i up.

This is a before shot, it has been sanded a bit here


The colour I chose was a dulux colour called Superstar, from the chip I thought it would be darker. Although it is much brighter than I expected I am totally thrilled with the colour. I used a high gloss and did three coats with a brush, sanded it back lightly and did a final coat with a roller.

I had a few tears while painting it, thinking of  Nanny, I love that I have been able to restore something of hers and give it a new purpose.

This is how it looks now.


I plan on wall papering the interior at some point (that might be another bolg post)


These are the knobs I found on Etsy for the drawers, glamourous don’t you think?



Now it is living in my sewing room and it’s intended purpose will be craft/sewing/crochet storage. So far I have managed to move all my supplies into the room but nothing has made it into the cupboard yet, I really need to organise it, I was trying to make curtains yesterday amidst all the chaos in there, not easy.

Anyway, I love it. I even got compliments from the Husband, he said, it looks really good and he was sorry for ever doubting me.
