I couldn't wait till tomorrow to share with you with my latest DIY project. I just finished it, so pretty tired but I'm so happy with the results:-)

I didn't have a bed side locker and all my stuff was on the floor- if you have a really high bed you might end up on the floor trying to turn off your alarm clock! The idea of having lovely bedside locker  made me a happy bunny. I spotted some offers in LIDL. Yeah, you heard me right. They've had solid pine cabinets on offer, which looked ok on the pictures.Here is one




It looked a bit unfinished and boring to be honest. The easiest way to pimp your cabinets is to paint them. That's what I did. I got two paint, which I got in Aldi. Both are acrylic, but they water based. They don't smell and it's easy to clean your hands once you finish painting. My latest colour crush is grey. I've chosen grey and white paint for my makeover.






Before I started painting I sanded the whole cabinet. The side and the top  of the cabinet I painted in grey. I also painted the side of the drawers in grey too.







Then I moved to the front of the drawers. To make it more interesting I went for a stripes:-) All you need is a tape and two different paints. First I used white paint, then I used tape to paint the stripes.





  
Work in progress


And this is how it looks like.


What do  you think? I'm in LOVE.
