Its the NEW YEAR - Meaning I have new odd jobs to fulfil, Do you remember my up cycling Ikea drawers blog post? - you can refresh your memory here - Cath Kidston drawers well they didn't last much longer.
Our lovely Antique shop closed down & by chance we stumbled into our local charity shop (Specialises in furniture) I fell in love with this Childrens wardrobe. For £40 too I snapped it up.
Its been sat in their bedroom in dark wood with a horrible varnish on for a few months now.
I popped into our local Homebase & managed to get 5 litres of brilliant white paint only Dulux for just £7. Price error on their system! Bargain.
I did Sand the whole wardrobe down. the smell was awful I have no idea what varnish was used on it... but it wasn't the nicest of smells.
|Love my sander...|

It amazes me how much some white paint changes furniture! Sneak preview of the drawers too Blog post to follow...
