I bought this little French wall cupboard a few weeks ago. It was very scruffy and had a mirror in the door. In a Bathroom this would have been useful, but I wanted to put it in our sitting room, so a make-over was called for!
After giving it a good clean and removing the mirror, I gave it a coat of Ruby Red paint. I love red and use it a lot in our home. All I needed for this project was one of those small tester pots of emulsion paint.
I had some scraps of vintage wallpaper, which I used to line the inside of the cupboard....
Finally, I made a little patchwork curtain, using some of my vintage Rose print fabrics. I backed it in some red ticking, as it will be seen when the door is opened. This was then threaded on some sprung curtain wire and fixed behind the opening in the door.
This is the finished result. I shall post another photo when it is up on the wall and in use!
