Project Thirty Eight: Painting my Wardrobe White
The bedroom masterplan is really coming together now, and I completed loads of projects well ahead of the initial month-long timeframe I had set myself! I do have fleeting moments when I wonder if I’m becoming a little too white obsessed (probably not helped by Mr. B’s constant teasing!) but then when I use white and see the finished product I realise it’s not an obsession, it’s just good taste! White looks good, there is no denying it, and our bedroom is slowly but surely evolving into the tranquil haven of my dreams.
So, enough of the waffle, I painted the big old dark wood wardrobe white, and instantly the bedroom felt more spacious. This is what it looked like before:
Now that it is white, in a room whose walls are painted white, and next to the deliciously colourful chest of drawers, the wardrobe fits in perfectly and the whole bedroom is really coming together.
It took a total of four coats of Satinwood wood paint to cover the original dark wood and give a lovely bright smooth finish to the piece. Well worth the effort.
