I had this old (probably antique) chifferobe (wardrobe) that I wanted to make over. My DH said that I would probably regret it later (he's probably right - he usually is), but I did it anyway.
I painted the doors with black chalkboard paint and the chifferobe itself a gold color (using paint left over from this project).
I changed out the hardware (the doorknobs) with new hardware. The new ones look old though (like the antique glass knobs).
I've got something really special in mind for this baby.
