This is the start of the bookcase that we were given free
The next step; stage one primed. Hubs looks at it in horror while I glibbly say it's going to be fine! (all the while thinking the same as him)
Stage two; after another coat of primer and a few coats of Laura Ashley emulsion. Had run out of masking tape so was very careful doing the moulds in the glass....took ages.
Last stage; Curtains up, handles back on. Would have liked some different handles but re-cycled the old ones with a few coats of gold acyrilic paint.
Close up of the curtains, which are more red than the pink tinge it shows.
The total cost was £7.50 material (but had loads over for a patchwork) and 4 red beads at 20p each which I hung on the keys. Had all the paint already in. Found some curtain wires in the shed and cut them down to fit. So was pretty pleased with how it's turned out. As for hubs.....he is pleased that it's turned out OK so he doesnt have to lug it back into the shed!!
