Months and months ago
I went to Mississippi to meet up with my grandfather
to get some of my great-grandmother's furniture.
I spied this little (not really) gem of a wardrobe and had to have it.
We think it's close to 100 years old but no one knows for sure.
It was in decent condition but needed a lot of work
and what I had planned for it just had to happen.
Definitely needed work. It was missing a leg and had to be propped up
with cinder blocks while I worked on it.
The bottom had holes in it (from what looked like mice)
so it had to go.
After it had a new, sturdy bottom I decided to add wheels
so it'd be easier to move in the future.
Next I sanded it down
And painted it white.
Then added an antique glaze to it.
And where an old mirror used to be I decided to skip replacing that and just used chalkboard paint and added new handles.
A very lovely (if I do say so myself) completely redone wardrobe that can now stay in the family for much longer!
What's the biggest DIY you've done?
