Remember back in September that I showed you this little chest of drawers that desperately needed a makeover?
Well, welcome to my reading corner which is in my bedroom. My old chest of drawers is new again.
Jos sanded down the cupboard for me and I bought color of paint called 'samenspel' which is perhaps best translated as 'harmony'. I almost dry brushed it on to achieve a very old vintage look.
While at this shop, I found these really pretty vintage Delft blue knobs and bought them for these drawers since I decided to use the previous set I had bought for a cupboard up at the cottage.
We are so pleased with how it turned out that we cannot wait to start on the pine nightstands in the bedroom now. We wanted to lighten up this furniture but not go with white. I was nervous that this would all turn out as I had planned in my head but have been really happy with the results. It was well worth all that sanding as it looks like a whole new piece of furniture and is new once again.
It is raining again here today so perhaps the best place to be in sitting in my reading corner enjoying a good book.
