I know I haven't been very busy here on my blog, but I have been busy. :0)
My daughter has furniture in her room that belonged to my great-grandmother. It wasn't some beautiful furniture that left any fear of messing up the original finish. As a matter of fact, it had mis-matched fronts on the drawers which leads me to believe that maybe as things fell apart, two pieces were blended into one to make do.
So, I've painted a primer coat of white on everything. Then I painted the front of all of the drawers with brown chalk board paint. (She loves that!)
I had bought some drawer pulls but then decided that I just didn't really like them.
Of course, I didn't decide that until after I had filled in the holes from the original pulls and sanded everything down. Then (much later) when I decided I didn't like it, I had Dax come drill out all the holes I had filled in. LOL Figures, right?
Anyway, I had seen somewhere where they had just used fabric strips for the drawer pulls so that's what I did. I like the way it turned out and fortunately Abigail likes them too.
I also used some of the fabric to recover the chair at her desk. It's just a cheap little chair, but it's serving it's purpose right now. :0)
