I'm in the process of reinventing my daughter's room with a theme: leopard print. Today, my mother-in-law came over to help me with some deep cleaning of the room and to hang curtains. I then decided that I was going to paint all of her furniture black with a leopard print. We lugged everything downstairs, and the first piece I looked at was this small drawer tower (isn't it sooo dull looking in the photo above?). And then I had a brilliant idea: I would still paint it black, but instead of painting on the print, I would attach some pink leopard print fabric I had (and it matches some pillows I made her the other day).
One of the drawers has been broken. So rather than attempt to fix it, I decided to leave it out and attach the bottom of the drawer back to the unit after it had been covered in fabric...creating a shelf.
I also painted and added on some brand new knob handles for the drawers, and added some decorative silver studs in the corners. Isn't it AWESOME?
Oddly enough, I had to finish off the last coat of black paint with a tiny bottle I had...since somehow my large pint of it had been tainted towards the end of the project and turned into a navy blue. Wtf? I now don't have enough black to continue with the rest of the furniture today like I had planned, but I'm really excited about how this turned out! High five!
Yep...I did the lamp today too :)
Clane in charge.
