A little project for Ava’s room….
So we inherited a pretty old chest of drawers from my mother in law and it served a great purpose in Ava’s room (she’s nearly 2!) for all her vests, socks, Pj’s and blankies. It was a mahogany veneer 4 drawer dresser. It housed all her bits with lots of junk thrown on top and the bottom drawer needing some TLC. Here was the piece in question…. So you can see, it was in need of a little work. I’d heard and read great things about “chalk” paint and really loved the look of all the colours available and fancied a little “project”. I got some tester pots for some wooden letters but in the end opted for French Linen in the Annie Sloan range. I purchased it locally in a little shop in Ennis, Co. Clare called Sonoma. I LOVE that place!! I also purchased some super cool knobs to complete the look. And here it is……. And with curtains pulled….. This little plastic frame from Ikea was totally transformed too…
All the paint work is finished off with a coat of the light wax. Hey presto…..easy peasy! I suggested chalk painting our 3-year-old painted kitchen cabinets in a grey colour but “himself” is having none of it! (We’ll see who wins that battle!)
So any plans for making over any old furniture?
