Hi y'all! I don't know if anyone remembers me saying (probably not, it was a long time ago!) that I was thinking of making over my dresser??? Well on a kind of spur of the moment Homebase excursion on Sunday I bought myself some paint and decided to crack on with it.
This is it before with all the china emptied off, looking pretty naff to be honest...
And here is the after with everything back on....
I took the knobs off and left them as they were and I really like the contrast.
Have to admit this is probably my favourite makeover I've ever done, I always wanted a cream dresser and now I have one for the price of a pot of paint! We got the dresser from someone on ebay when we moved in about three years ago, I can't remember how much it was now but it was definitely a bargain so it's a pretty thrifty piece altogether. I keep catching sight of it and being so pleased, makes it all worth the FOUR coats of paint it took :)
Hope you had a great weekend and see you soon, love Mel xXxXx
Hi, I'm 32, I have two young daughters and I am in a bit of a transition and life change at the moment! Hopefully you will want to see how it goes with me.
I love things with a bit of history to them and enjoy their extra character. I enjoy sewing and embroidery when I get the chance! I love fabrics, ribbons and buttons... and chocolate.
I try to follow William Morris' guidance of "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful".
