Charlie like any small boy of 8 has collected a lot of “treasures” in those 8 short years. We recently upgraded his small bookcase to a larger one but he still needed a bit more space. Daddy Moo had an old cabinet he had inherited it was pretty ugly which he let Charlie and I loose on! Firstly I removed the weird wooden decoration on the top which sadly revealed 3 great big screws. Daddy Moo filed them down but the top still looked horrid.
Charlie began to sand down the wood which had quite a few layers of pink, white and cream paint on. We painted the cabinet with a chalk paint in grey and the hinges and handle I painted with black Rust-Oleum painters touch. All bits we already had in the cupboard.
The finished touches came when Charlie and I randomly found a pack of 4 animal sliver metal bottle tops £2.50 in the charity shop. We removed the cork and glued them over the top of the holes. Daddy Moo hung the cabinet on Charlie's wall so he can access his treasures from his high sleeper bed and they are out of the way of little girls *cough* called Olive *cough*.
Charlie : I enjoyed painting it. I'm really proud of how good it looks.
I don't know about you but I think it looks fantastic!
