  {She's finally done!}





Isn't she beautiful? I am KICKING myself for not taking a before picture. So just imagine the most neglected, ugly, beatup, dumpster armoire you have ever seen with peeling faux wood vaneer and missing drawers, and you got it! So I bought this at Good Will for $19.99, a little much I know, but I had been searching for one for Lagan's room that was small enough to fit in the space she has available. I brought it home, cleaned her up, several coats of paint later, added knobs I bought on sale at Hobby Lobby, DUH!, and I sewed up some "curtains" to hide all of her movies, and we're in business!
So what do you think? Not bad for about $30.00 and a few day's labor, huh? I even gave her some decoration of items I have made! Now she looks at home!

I LOVE the armoire! The fabric is gorgeous and knobs are so cute and creative! Isn't it so satisfying to transform a piece with a little paint and fabric and give it life again? You're so talented!
