I know I started this blog a few weeks ago by saying I am not one of those amazing crafty mummas. It is true. But for some reason over the past week or so I have had loads of ideas for ways to give things around our home a facelift by reusing things other people have thrown away.
On our way back from our camping trip at the start of this week we called into a tip shop. We purchased this dresser for Asher’s room for $10.
I sanded it back yesterday and decided I would use some chalk paint we have for the drawers so Ash and Isaac can be creative.
I painted one side with chalkboard paint also – extra room for drawings or lots of messages like “Boys only” or “Poo”. Can’t imagine there will be pretty flowers and sunshine drawn on the chalk surfaces…
I stenciled a few stars on using a cookie cutter. The project took me around 5 hours total. I must admit, I keep looking at it marveling that I did something that looks so funky!! Give me an electric sander and a paint roller over a sewing machine anyday!!
