Fresh and fun wardrobe makeover

Not everyone prefers to buy their furniture straight from the shop. Some people would rather customize, personalize or even make their own furniture. This is the story of a wardrobe that used to look sad and empty until it was turned into this lovely and colorful unit. It now has more character and its own identity.The unit was transformed in two days and the cost was only $20. The original piece had the right size and shape but it didn’t look very attractive.

After Diana bought this piece she also got a big pot of green paint. However, just painting the wardrobe didn’t seem to be enough for Diana. So she decided to also add some small holes and then some extra color and also to embroider a pattern onto the doors of the unit.

First, Diana sanded and primed the wardrobe. Then she took out the doors. This way it was easier for her to add the pattern on the doors. After measuring the doors she came up with a pattern. She decided not to exaggerate so she started with a simple circle. The she measured the center of the door and taped the pattern to the door. Then Diana drilled some holes according to that pattern. She sanded the edges and made them smooth and then she applied two coats of green paint. After that was done, Diana mounted the doors back. After that she decided to play with some wool and neon thread and made those beautiful decorations.{found on designsponge}.
