A few days ago I posted a picture of this entertainment unit, which I was hoping to transform into a pretty little wardrobe for our youngest daughter. My husband wasn't convinced, but I ploughed on, hoping like mad I'd be able to pull it off!
First of all, I gave it a light sand, then painted it in a few coats of Taubmans "Princess Bling" white. Note to self: when painting anything white, allow 3x more paint than if you were using any other colour.
Once that was all done, I cut down some chalkboard sheeting to fit the holes where the glass was. I chose to get rid of the glass for both the safety reasons, and asthetics. Messy cupboards and glass doors aren't cool! Neither are smashed glass doors :) . I decided to use chalkboard so the girls can have a bit of fun with it too, and it's simple enough to switch the panel out for something a little more "grown up" when she decides that she's too old for a chalkboard.
We've still got to work out what we're doing with the centre section, at this point we're looking around for a nice mirror to go in there, so that she can have a sweet little dressing table at a height that's great for a little miss.
We also have to put a hanging rail in the hanging section, but that's a tomorrow job.
Hope you like my little makeover - I'm super excited with it!!!
I will take some better photos of it in the morning, the lighting isn't great in these photos, but I'm too excited not to share it right now!
