It's literally been years since I've been able to do any DIY. I used to be addicted to it.
There's nothing more fun than a bit of a reno... (especially when it involves painting stripes on the wall)
And if I had a limitless budget, I'd love to pull out my current kitchen and start from scratch just like this one at my old house.
Now that I can breathe, I can get back into it again which is very exciting!
I'm starting with my old neglected bedroom chest of drawers - taking off these old ugly drawer pulls that I put on somewhere around 1997?
I'm painting the tapered edges of the drawer fronts, and then using my own wallpaper designs to cover the flat sections.
It's been a reeeeeally long time since I've had to use a drill. The first hurdle came when the battery was dead. I waited for it to charge, and then couldn't work out why the hole wasn't drilling..... I had the silly thing in reverse!
Second hurdle - the screws at the back of the new handles are too long and I don't own a hacksaw to cut them down.
So tomorrow, I'll be taking them to be cut down and getting back into it.
I'm only working on a drawer at a time as I don't want to empty out all of my clothes at once. Fingers crossed it all should be finished by the end of the week!
