Wardrobe Completed


In between the showers of rain this week and getting home late from work I have managed to finish off the wardrobe.  Painted white with grey panelling something was missing from this piece and it was looking far too plain. So I painted on some number stencils for a bit of fun.





Heaps of drawers and hanging space inside makes for a very versatile little piece.

I had this wardrobe in my daughters room for over a year. She came home last night and said "love the wardrobe mum where did you get that from".  Oh she said thats right I remember it now.

Very cute indeed. I love how you went with the painted panels and seriously, who can not love some stencilled numbers - not me!
I just finished a dresser where I stencilled numbers on each drawer and I love it.

That's fabulous! I love all of it: the grey, the white, the glass knobs, the shabby treatment, the stencilled numbers. So wonderful, and such a great makeover from the original piece.

Hi Sandy, thank you for your comment and advice re the bookshelves. I know the potential of this house is huge, but the bank balance isnt - each room is so huge, so its one at a time (never fast enough for me)! I love your wardrobe, the color is great. The numbers add a quirkiness most people wouldnt think of. Have a lovely weekend.

I love it Sandy! Funny Paige, does she want it back in her room now?
There's only one thing about it...you used 3 odd numbers and 1 even (My OCD is a curse!)
Did you make the stencils yourself? If not, where'd you get them???
