close up of the cupboard front (which I took the wrong way around!)
This is the right way round!...the tassel came of something else which matched the painting on the cupboard.
The Top the design is repeated on the other corner
Its got a painted red undercoat, (emulsion) with a cream emulsion on top and then sanded back a bit (a coat of satin varnish to protect it) to make it shabby chic!
The borders are supposed to be a pretend bamboo which you cant really see on the photo, painted in acyrlic paints and the cupboard was free....can't get more money saving than that! :0D
Oh and the inside is also painted red.
