Many years ago I purchased an Ikea Tallboy for my bedroom. At the time this was all I could afford and I wasn't too fussed by laminate furniture. Times have moved on and so have my tastes. However, this tallboy seems to follow me everywhere. I tried to retire it to the garage a year or so ago, but Paul was very keen to hang onto it. There's only one thing I can do ... it's time for an Ikea Hack of my bedroom tallboy!
It's been quite some time since I finished this makeover. I felt as if I needed to make peace with this little TV unit before I could share it. All I wanted was a quick and simple makeover of my entertainment unit with a chalk paint wash. Sound easy, right? Well ... this was one of those times when nothing seemed to go right ... but boy did I learn a lot!
I recently found this really sweet wicker chair at our local thrift shop. It was a child's version of the larger wicker chairs often used to decorate outdoor areas. As soon as I saw this chair I knew Miss E would love it.
A big focus of mine over the last few years has been painting our interior. We started with the trim and doors, and how I am focusing on freshening up the 1990s beige walls. I have been blown away at the difference a coat of paint can make.
The last couple of weeks have been a little hectic. So this week I'm taking it easy and sharing a rather whimsical project I recently completed ... my bohemian inspired fabric wrapped bedhead.
The chest-of-drawers in our bedroom was the first piece of furniture that I purchased with the intention to paint. To date, all my furniture makeovers have been hand-me-downs or orphans in need of some tender loving care.
I recently went through a phase of buying wooden chopping boards. I was inspired by photos of beautifully renovated kitchens with chopping boards hanging stylishly on the walls ... very chic and a little rustic.
Here a little project I recently completed to try and pretty up my front veranda. The outdoor light was in rather a sad state, with the previous owner painting it to match the bricks.
Inspired by my successful first experience using chalk paint. I decided I was ready to progress to a piece of furniture. My next project is the makeover of a pine kitchen chair using chalk paint.
