I didn't do much sewing until my kids came along and then I suddenly felt creative when it came to decorating their bedrooms.
One of my very first projects was inspired by a picture I saw in a magazine of an upholstered tallboy. (I have kept the magazine - Home Beautiful Aug 2002!)
Here is the finished result of my daughter's bedroom:
I had bought a little nursery wardrobe in raw pine which I painted white. I then bought a variety of pretty fabrics, some wadding and a staple gun.
It was a fairly straightforward job. I cut the fabric and wadding and attached it with a staple gun, making sure to stretch the fabric evenly, and turn over the edges of the fabric. I unscrewed the knobs beforehand and also painted them, then put them back on over the fabric.
It made such a difference to the room.
This is my little Pop jumping for joy - so many years ago now!
Here is another example of what you can do
with a tutorial I found here.
Note: You need to have drawers that do not go in flush to the cabinet.
