Re-model of two sets of drawers

These drawers have been floating around my house for years.  Yeah, I wish I was kidding, too.  When we moved house, I commandeered two of them for fabric storage.

Before: the front

Before: the tops

As you can see, they aren't the prettiest drawers ever.

Before: handle

They did have some cool handles though, which was a bonus. Since they weren't an overly pretty colour, I decided to replace those as well.  My first idea was to paint stripes on the drawers, (pink and green, of course) but when I went to Bunnings to grab my materials, I found this awesome contact stuff.  It was awesome, and made my idea so much easier.

Stuff I used for the makeover!

The spray paint was Dad's idea, and it really was a fabulous one, same for the random pot of purple paint (we bought it about 2 years ago to cover up some paint chips and never used the rest of it).

This, is probably one of my favorite projects up until now.  Aside from the point I had to deal with this all day.

Step 5 - Remove furry "helpers" from area.

Yeah, got annoying pretty quickly.

After: Drawers front!

Tada!  The contact stuff was super easy to use, and looks seriously adorable.

After: The tops

Not to mention that the contact tops are super easy to clean.  I'm loving the shiny handles too, and I was even considering using white handles instead, but I'm so glad I went with the silver ones.

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
