DIY - Painting the town white!


I've had this little chest of drawers beside my bed for as long as I can remember, but I was growing tired of the brown wood, as it didn't match anything else in my room (the rest of my furniture is black). So, last week, me and Ben got the paintbrushes out, and attacked it with white paint. I absolutely love the result, as it looks so much tidier and brighter! 





It needs few more coats of paint, but I had to bring it back inside and start using it again, as all of my stuff was on my bed!



I also have a few more wooden items lined up to be painted white, but I need to take a trip to Homebase first as I've ran out of paint. I used Homebase's own 'satin finish white wood paint.'

Will you be revamping any old furniture in this way?
