Craft room Re-vamp #1

Over the past month I have been giving my little craft room a make-over.
It's a small room at the back of the house, so it's often dark and very cluttered.

My aim is to make it a more inspiring place to be,
by making small (and inexpensive) changes.

This little storage unit was one of the first under the radar.
I've had it for years (I think it came from Ikea once upon a time), It's always been very handy, but not very pretty.

I gave it a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Old White and waxed the parts that weren't to be decoupaged.
Good old PVA was used to paste the patterned papers to the drawer fronts and a craft file to sand down the paper edges flush to the drawer.

These little trays had the same treatment, but here I used a mix of AS Duck Egg and Old white.

I hope you all have a super weekend.
Can't wait to hear what you've all been up to.

Thanks for reading.

Love Katie
