I finally got around to painting it and it is now at the bottom of my bed and my shoes finally have a place in my bedroom instead of being stored in the guest room wardrobe.

That meant that I didn't have to sand and prime the wooden box, how good is that?
Two coats of paint was all that was needed. Then a bit of sanding around the corners to make it look a bit aged and voila!
|The first coat is done!|
The metal door pull was originally in our bathroom cupboards that were thrown out when we we renovated our bathroom earlier this year. I had kept the pulls as I thought they might one day be used somewhere.
This shoe storage box is now at the feet of my bed.

|I almost forgot to take a pic before the bed was all covered in the new paint|

|A couple of gold touches finishes the look|
|The finished bedroom|
With the revamped chest of drawers (on the right) painted with various tones of turquoise and the blinds hung the room is ready, now we just need the guests!
|From a plain stained pain chest of drawers...|
|To this colourful ombre chest of drawers to match the bedroom colours|
Do you like the Ombre chest of drawers? It came up quite nice I think! It was a purchase from Gumtree, and cost $80.
And here is a photo of the bedroom in it's original state when we came to see the house for the first time! Can you see the hideous 70's carpet in brown and orange?
Big improvement I think!
