Shabby chic project número uno

I’m not sure how I inherited such a ghastly and boring piece of furniture but I know a lil’ bitta’ love and care usually leads to miracles 🙂 So I researched around on google for the type of shabby look I wanted and then it happened… I turned my garden into a painters nightmare… Paint pots, lids, brushes, and sandpaper scattered about with paint footprints following me everywhere where I went?!

I sanded down the areas I wanted to cover and painted my lil’ hearty out. Rather impatiently I applied two more coats and left to dry 🙂

I then saw on eBay 6 beauties! Cute little drawer knobs all waiting to come tumbling through my letterbox one by one 🙂

I’d love to say I very cleverly screwed them on, however I did have to get the papa bear in on the action!

Et voila!
