Tallboy revamp..


It's school holidays down here at the moment and I've got a couple of days of work..YIPPEE!!

Of course it's pouring rain, it does every spring school break..

Took the boys shopping yesterday and out for lunch,then tackled my bedroom drawers..

As usual I forgot to take the before photos..I just get to excited..

They originally started out as that awful orangey pine colour..

Two coats of white and we're looking good..

Lovely crystal handles..Almost complete..

A bit of sanding around the edges..

Then my favourite bit..

I printed of some french script words on my printer and copied them by hand onto the drawer fronts...So easy and effective.

A black marker pen was all that was needed..

Loving them...
