DIY: Shabby Chic Drawers

Monday, 4 June 2012

♥ Take one old, slightly knackered chest of drawers looking for a new lease of life

♥ Sand thoroughly. Wipe off any excess dust before going on

♥ Remove handles, fill holes and apply first coat of paint- cream or white

♥ Second coat of paint to be applied, this should be the colour you want the drawers to be.
We had a third coat too to make sure all the dark wood was covered properly

♥ Add new handles and sand to the shabby chic style you would like

♥ Voila! 

Have you ever DIY'd a piece of furniture?
I found it really fun to do, and love how it's turned out
