My polka dot wardrobes!

Our house is a constant work in progress, as anyone who reads this blog knows, and the latest things to be crossed off the enormous to-do list are my wardrobes.

I bought two plain pine, unfinished, wardrobes ooh.. 3/4 years ago, with the intention of painting them, and just hadn’t got round to it, but finally they are finished!

I started off just painting them white, but the doors lacked something, so I dug out some polka dot wallpaper I’d bought years ago (for the bargain price of 50p a roll!) and tried putting a piece in each of the doors, it just puts a little finishing touch to them that I really like.

So, from plain pine, to white and dotty. My bedroom is fairly small so now they are painted, white against white walls, they give the appearance of a little more space, and I love them 😀

Having done these, I’ve now got another couple of projects in mind for some other furniture that has had better days..

  1. Hi, I’m thinking of doing the, exact same thing to an old pine wardrobe I have and have seen some paint by Anne Slone chalk paints which I understand you can paint straight onto wood without prepping( sanding and priming etc….) and wanted to put some wallpaper in the panelling of wardrobes. Did you seal it wallpaper paste or use anything else? Your Wrobe looks fab by the way!!

  2. Thanks Karen 🙂

    I just pasted the wallpaper as normal and stuck it on the doors, I didn’t seal it with anything and so far have had no problems at all with them.

    Hope it all goes well with yours, I was so pleased with the difference it made to my room!
