Lounge cupboard makeover COMPLETED!
Do you remember this piece of furniture featured on one of my previous posts? It was painted in a very pale green colour when I bought it. Although a pretty colour, it did not go with the colourscheme in the lounge.
I painted it in Swedish blue but it came out a bit too dark so I added some an off white colour to the mix until I obtained the colour I was after.
Above shown still looking a bit too dark but here is what it looks like now:
Come and have a look inside...
Yes, I kept the wallpaper in the end. After the paint dried I began putting in a few items just to see what it would look like and I liked how it looked.
I still have a few gaps where I intend on adding more items.
The 6 cups & saucers belonged to my English Grandfather. They were given to him as a prize after winning a race (running) in 1930's.
Quite soon I will show you what I have done with the area under the stairs.
