I shut myself in the garage and a couple of hours later I brought this out........tahdah!
(Ignore the blobs of blutac that were holding the pearls in place -glue was still wet!)
All the materials I used were already in my garage, left over from other projects. First thing I did was clean it within an inch of its life. Then I used chalk paint, left over fabric for the lining, ribbon to bind the legs, knobs came off another set of drawers where the knobs were changed and given a lick of paint. The only thing I bought especially was the pearls from Oxfam 99p (they were super long and will do a few more future projects).
Tip to any crafters, if you can find cheap costume jewellery at car boot sales for pences - snap it up! Even if you don't need them now a collection of beads and embellishments are really useful to have at hand when you get the creative urge.
Now my bedroom bits and bobs are tidy (though the more I look at it the more I wish it would fit in my kitchen. Wouldn't it look nice with some old china cups?)
I'm over the moon with it and DH said it was worth £25 to keep me quiet for a couple of hours. Haha! I would love to read about your latest projects - feel free to leave a comment! Have a great weekend!
