It’s been the most wonderful week of birthday fun, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. In the mean time, I thought I’d share one of my favourite DIY projects from the last couple of months.
About ten years ago (not exaggerating) I bought a storage unit with nine wicker baskets from Argos. It was pretty cheap and pretty basic, but I planned to ‘do’ something with it. Finally, I did.
Using my firm favourite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I sanded down the unit and painted it. This was pretty time consuming; you can see every inch of this unit so it all needed to be painted evenly, and the inside of each ‘box’ was pretty intense work.
I gave the unit one coat of paint and left it to dry. Once it was dry, I used the Annie Sloan Soft Wax. For full details on how best to use Annie Sloan paint and wax, see my previous projects.
Once the unit was painted, I decided to use it in the bathroom of the new flat. The nine baskets now hold all my hair, health and beauty products and make a great little plant holder. I love it!
So easy, I probably should have done it ten years ago.
