Last week I was absolutely determined to finish off renovating my bedroom wardrobe before moving on to anything else.Then the shelves arrived in my kitchen over the weekend and now of course I can’t leave this room unfinished.
So, I have this dresser. Now I LOVE the shape of this dresser. I like the tongue and groove effect at the back and the side, I like the shape of it and I love the fact that there is lighting built in to the two cupboards already.
It is a Magnet kitchen.
Having never had a magnet kitchen before I have no idea if they are sturdy and very good investments or whether they are not. So time will tell but I believe it has been in the kitchen for some time.
As I felt like I was on roll from decorating the shelves my Dad built me for my birthday I then started to take a close look at the dresser. Eying it up and deciding what I could do to make it work for me as it’s not happening for me in it’s current guise, I don’t like the colour.
So first of all I removed the doors (!!!)
I thought it may give it a more open feeling (!!! again)
Then I started to move every piece of china I owned in to the dresser in an attempt to see if it would all fit in there. I think I was trying to disguise the dresser with the china.
Even adding a White section. * sigh *
But you know, it just was not happening.
So this morning I bit the bullet and made my way in to the garage to retrieve these……
Yep, the dresser is getting a paint job. It’s a big job and needs preparation or it’ll look terrible but it’s the only way I’ll be happy with the dresser. I’m certainly not buying a new one when, as I’ve already said, there’s so much I love about this one aside from the colour.
As you can tell my tripod still hasn’t turned up, apologies.
So I’ll get going on it today, rubbing it down with some course sandpaper to create a key for the primer to grasp on to and then set about painting it Milk White.
My feeling is that it’ll look really cool and when I stand back from it I’ll be happy I made the effort. In fact, knowing myself as I do, I’ll be prouder of the new revamped
wardrobe , oops, dresser than of a brand new one.
And I’m most certainly putting the doors back on! #clearlyitookleaveofmysensesforamomenthere
