It seems like ages since my last post but I have been busy decorating my full size house. I wish I could say it was all done, but at least i've done a couple of rooms.
One of those bits was a display cabinet, this is what it looked like before the fall.
It had come apart into all it's component pieces but was remarkably not broken. As I looked at it trying to decide what to do inspiration hit. I used my trusty mini drill with sanding bit to sand each piece back to the bare wood as well as good old elbow grease and sandpaper.
Then I painted each piece with ivory emulsion paint. I sanded again and used abranet to give it a smooth finish. I covered the base with a patterned paper and cut a piece of card to fit the back which I also covered with the same paper. Then I put it back together..... that was the hardest part!
I used some jewellery pins I had to replace the gold knobs that came with the cabinet and I also replaced the front Perspex as it had become scratched.
It has a little wobble, but I love it. :0)
I hope you like it too.
