Make over

I originally made this little dresser for my mum’s anniversary.  I have been using it as yarn storage in my summerhouse work shop – there is loads of shelf space and a cupboard to hide things in.  It’s years old and very dated – but it’s solid pine and a lovely little piece of furniture and I wanted to keep it.

I got some of the new Rustoleum Furniture Paint because it’s designed to use directly on the surface with no prep or sanding – which will make things so much easier for me to cope with.

It has taken me 3 weeks to repaint it – 2 coats of Chalk White all over (inside as well) – and a coat of sealing polish – and new door knobs!!

I am so thrilled with it – especially the ‘diamond’ door knobs.  I will finish filling the shelves with my knitting machine cones after I get my new carpet down.  My winter blankets are hidden in the cupboard – and my old 1890s Singer sits on the top.  It looks amazing with my black and white scheme
