Well I really am proud of myself today. Finished this in just one weekend, and I am very pleased with the results. I distressed the edges ever so slightly, for that 'shabby chic' look, using a rather fine sandpaper, so as not to get carried away with the process.
Now I have no excuse to not sort out my tshirts, pjs and undies into neat tidy drawers,.... oh yes, I forgot to buy lining paper, so have to wait another day or 2.
My first venture into a make-over I shall count as a big success!
