Finally up!

I painted my little shelf unit a few weeks ago but haven't put it up until today.

Here's a before picture
I bought it at the boot last year for £2! The Hubster was going to put it up last week ,but had to go and work in Norfolk. He was only supposed to be gone for 3 days, but was actually gone for 8!!

Anyway now I'm so pleased he's home . He doesn't mind that there are a few jobs to do! He's in a good mood because he's got the Grand Prix to watch!
I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I sanded and primed it. The I painted it with 2 coats of emulsion and then I waxed it.

I'm off to paint my mirror now. It's cream with a touch of gold and I'm going to paint it white.

Have a lovely day!
