Wardrobe IKEA hack

It's the simple things isn't it? I recently decided my daughter's wardrobe was too boring. I could either update it or I could buy a new one (was thinking of a smaller one from IKEA). But then I thought I'd rather extend the life of this one if I can and save the cash.

So… I thought I'd wallpaper it. It's a bit fiddly and I still haven't done the sides but if you've got a couple of hours or so it's worth doing. Here's the before...

and the after

Oh, and here's the cheap Rast drawers I got from IKEA (£20) which I painted with rustoleum's chalk paint in duck egg blue.  

 And here it is in situ in the room with the wallpaper patchwork behind. :)
