Bedside Lockers

5 Materials
5 Hours

If you have followed me for a while you may remember the navy chest of drawers I did a while ago - for my mam & she now wants the lockers painted (next she will want her bed painted to be continued) so here’s the job I did on her bedside lockers!!!


First colour choice - raw silk from fusion

i sat them up on stools to get the bottom part of them and save me sitting on the floor

First coat

Little boomerang

One down one to go

2 done!!!

i let the paint dry a week before doing the frog tape!!

Next colour choice - midnight blue

I put the frog tape over the cream paint (which in the ends still peeled off some of the paint)

First coat of navy

Unscrew the door handle

More tape for the side of the drawer

Close up of the paint and tape!!

First coat of navy done!

Second coat started

Using two fussy blokes rollers they are amazing!!!!

Second coat on the drawers

I decided to match the handles of these to the chest of drawers so I changed them

Screwed into place

The satisfaction of removing tape the best bit!!!!

Here’s where the tape pulled some paint off!!! So I used a tiny brush and just went along it free hand

Close up of the drawer detail!!’

Finished !!!!!

    I am getting ready to refinish a dining room table. Would you recommend Fusion paint for this kind of project? Why or why not?

    Oh my goodness. I am coming out of a terribly dark depression and I am going back to blues and navy. These are just gorgeous. What did you clean with before starting?

    Great job - the only thing I would have done differently would to omit the white paint and use the beautiful blue all over. Love the brass touch!

    They are gorgeous and I'm so in awe that you were able to paint without getting any on the floor! Great color combo.
