Monthly makers – September

This months theme is interior, which as we just moved (well, it’s been almost two months now..) was a perfect fit. As I mentioned a while ago, a local newspaper was coming to do an interview with me and shooting a few pics from our home and that certainly gave me the right push to finish up this project…

Almost two years ago, I bought this small chest of drawers. The front of the drawers were in really bad condition and a lot of the front kept falling off. Usually I prefer to take good care of old furniture and I don’t like when people paint over it, but there was no hope for this one. 

I started working on it pretty quickly, but soon after I just stopped. I couldn’t decide on what color and then I finally did but still didn’t paint it. 

…and then, fast forward a year and a half and here we go 😉 

Why does somethings take forever? I really like how it came out, now I just need to find some handles haha! 

It didn’t turn out great, but it looks a million times better now then it did before.

What do you think about painting old furniture? 🙂

    Fint! Känslan när man äntligen fått klart ett projekt som varit på gång länge <3 Jag gillar att måla om gamla möbler, tänker att det är 100 gånger bättre att måla om och använda grejen än att gömma bort det i ett förråd pga det inte helt faller en helt i smaken!

    Jag gillade bild två! Annars har jag en tendens att måla prylar. Mest för att de saker jag kommer över liksom tappat hoppet och är på väg till att kastas.
    Så jag gör ett återupplivningsförsök och ger saker nytt hopp!
