Hi Lovelies, If you are interested in upcycling something then this one is for you.
I really wanted a shabby chic dresser so I searched shops, ebay, gumtree etc.. and to be honest I didn’t like them or they were really expensive so I decided to give it a go myself with my husband, heres how it turned out. I got one off ebay. It was pine before, a bit worn out with a broken door.
- We cleaned our dresser, sugar soap is great for this.
- We then sanded down the top to expose the fresh wood.
- Then we gave it a couple of coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint. I have since refreshed it with one more coat.
- Then apply a layer of Annie Sloan clear wax. All done!
We could then get on with the best part decorating it 🙂 I got some drawer liners from Home bargains.
The door handles are decoupage and are from Bettys Shabby Chic Boutique, you can order these here.
It is one of my most beloved possessions. I love the fact that it was just pine before and now is something I absolutely love. Hope you give it a go and its something you love forever.
Happy crafting x
