The arrival of Annie Sloan paint on SA soil has made many previously challenging endeavours far more manageable.
I have done quite a few tables which have been seen in previous posts but my energies lately have been aimed at rejuvenating a really rather unattractive cupboard.
|not pretty but stored loads and loads of stuff!|
The entire unit as is is probably worth R200 at the most so I did not want to spend much cash on the actual piece. I essentially wanted to slap on some paint and change the drawer handles. Initially I had dreams of using old maps (or map fabric) on the top and sealing it with a large piece of glass or perspex. Both these options proved outrageously expensive (R600 - R800)
|Taking the doors off - will repurpose them someday soon|
|Glass handles, pallet crates and Mr Price boxes|
The handles for the drawers were found at Heart and Home - a wonderful place to browse and find beautiful things for your home
Fortunately I spotted this grey table runner on clearance at Mr Price Home and just knew it would do the trick. At the same time I found the lovely grey/white French inspired boxes for the lower tier.
I am pretty stoked that I actually finished this. I have a rather ugly habit of starting projects with great gusto and then either NOT finishing or finishing in a hurry - this time I ran the gauntlet, did the hard graft and am grateful that it turned out so well.
