Mini Bedroom Makeover

After I finished painting the Chook house I decided to keep going, I had the hang of the compressor and all the gear was out so what else could I paint?

I had wanted to give our bedroom a lift for a while...

It was looking a bit dated and tired so what better way to freshen up then with a coat of paint

Oooops, I should have made sure the bed was properly made before I took photos : )

A new coat of paint

 Some new handles

..... equals a fresher lighter bedroom, total cost $0.

We had the paint left over and we used the old handles from the kitchen makeover 
(still to come... one day....).

Another little job that has made a huge difference was replacing our built in cupboard doors with sliding doors. Given the smaller size of our bedrooms this has given us so much extra space, I just haven't got round to painting them yet.

Well another week is almost over, I best go get ready for work.

 Have a great weekend!
