2 makeover pictures!!

I feel quite impressed with myself. I haven't even been moved into my house and i've had time to do a makeover lol. This Bureau was £20 from the Ad Trader newpaper. I thought i saw potential and was really excited about it. Then sadly, i started painting it white and decided to sand down the drawers for a different effect and it went terribly wrong.
But my Mum came to the rescue with the suggestion of doing it the same as my coffee table and chest of drawers (which can be seen in the next set of photos) in the wood glade green paint and the laura ashley wallpaper. I like it much better now, thankfully because it nearly went in the skip.



I loved this chest of drawers. I got it from a second hand shop for just £15.

These look lovely - you really are inspirational. After reading your blog you have made me look at furnishing Jamies room with a new outlook.

Love the soft shade of green you used to paint both your pieces of furniture.

I can not believe anyone would paint such beautiful wood. Painted furniture over kill. Have something natural and beautiful in your house. A mix of painted and wood. Not good at all. Poor wood.
