Befores and Afters

A ten dollar dressing table from the tip shop.

Sanded and coat with two oats of paint.

A toy basket from the side of the road.

Painted in cheap white paint from Bunnings ($16).

I think I need to go back and paint the base.

The rest of the mess is courtesy of moving time.


  1. Looking good Cherrie. Isn't it funny when we move we tend to strip our furniture and paint it. We are moving in a few months and I want to strip my huge dining table and re-varnish it, and a few other pieces and I'm even making curtains for Spring even though we won't be in the house for all of Spring! I'm thinking I'm a little ODD!!! (in a good way of course)
    Happy moving and great to see your handy work! xx

  2. I do like you makeovers Cherrie. It's amazing what a good lick of paint can do.

  3. Such great finds and make-overs there. I always love white. All of our furniture is white.


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
