I chose the Scandinavia 2 Door 3 Drawer Wardrobe, as no dressing room is complete without somewhere to store a girls dresses! A rgos do a range of wardrobes (see here) including 6 different wardrobe designs in the Scandinavia bedroom range, but I picked this one because it’s not too big for the small room, and I can make use of the bottom drawers to store shoes etc.
The solid wood made it very easy to paint using normal white household paint, and I just used a normal paintbrush, and no sanding was required as the wood was ready to be painted on. Also, I only needed to use one coat of paint, as the wood was light and not dark enough to show through the paint. I really like the panel detail of the wardrobe doors and sides too, as it gives it a bit of character. Can’t wait to fill it with my dresses! It took Dad and I about and hour to build this together, but it was relatively simple, but not sure I could have done it alone! It then took me another hour and a half to paint it all over.
The bedside drawer chest I’m planning on using to keep my nail polishes/make up/bits and bobs in. The three drawers are quite deep and I’m sure I can keep lots in them! Again I’ve customised this with 30mm crystal knobs which I think make them look a little more glamorous than regular chunky wooden ones. This was really easy to build, and I actually did most of it myself, but then Dad came to assist me! I think the clean white furniture looks really lovely against the pretty patterened wallpaper. Literally cannot wait until the room is finished, which I’m hoping will be by the weekend 🙂 Check out these before and after photos.. amazing how a lick of paint can transform something so easily!
