Bringing a tall boy back to life

Bringing a tall boy back to life

I wrote a blog article a little while ago about Decorating with Black and White. We are currently designing a master bedroom and ensuite out of the old kitchen and living room upstairs. During the process of creating a black and white French bedroom, I came up with the idea to restore an old chest of drawers to suit the theme.

Here are the drawers before – painted mission brown.

I wanted to do something a little bit different to them than just paint them a single colour. So of course I decided on black and white. The drawers needed a good sanding before I could do anything to them. They are actually a hand me down from my grandma, and they have a few layers of paint on them already.

So off came the handles and the sanding commenced.

Then they were ready for their makeover.

I decided to buy mini rollers because I wanted a nice smooth finish to the paint job.

The handles were the next thing I had to decide on. There are so many different options to choose from, but here’s what I ended up with.

And here’s the finished product.

Pretty happy with the end result and it looks lovely in our French themed master bedroom.
