Of course I couldn't just leave the box the way it was, so I got hubby to take it apart for me and after a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint it was transformed!
The little drawers had been lined with this wonderful 70s wallpaper, but I decided that something a bit brighter would be more effective after I had painted it, so I chose this pink and white polka dot paper.
I have to admit that it was a nightmare to paint - all those little bits and pieces. I would not do it again!
The good news is - I've sold it already!!!!!
I admire your patience! Looks lovely and glad it was worth your while ...
A great transformation but I wouldn't have been able to sell it once it was finished - it is too gorgeous!
GORGEOUS! My Annie Sloan has gone a bit thick so I'm trying to use it watered down a bit - getting very frustrated now as it keeps going bobbly. Yours looks perfect - well done x Jane
It must have been a bit if a wrench to part with that beauty...especially after all your hard work!
It must have sold quickly, it is lovely.
You lucky lady, how do you manage to find such treasures.
It looks beautiful x
Amazing transformation! I have one I found that someone was throwing away, it's now my toolbox, so I have my own collection without borrowing my husband's and without him borrowing mine! How you can bear to part with it, though, I really can't imagine!!!
That is so cool! I like it plain, but with the paint and polka dots it would be such a pleasure to sit down to sew. Congratulations on selling it so quickly!
You did a beautiful job. Do you sell online?
This is such a gorgeous upcycle! I've seen quite a few sewing baskets like this, but have never thought to paint one. I love the colour too!! X
That is an amazing transformation and I'm not surprised you sold it. Good for you! x
It's so pretty! My mom had one similar to that (darker stain and legs) When we were little girls we were so intrigued by the way it opened up. One of my sisters has it at her place now.
You made a lovely job of it Liz. I would have had trouble parting with that one too.
What a great transformation! xxx
I have a similar sewing box, but on legs, and another darker wood one too. Both came with various sewing paraphernalia still inside - I think it's the law of secondhand sewing boxes and baskets! Hope you made a good profit after all your hard work! xxx
Just gorgeous and any wonder it is sold already! Great job. :)
La verdad es que la transformación ha sido completa y te ha quedado genial
