Beachy Chest Revamp

This week I finished painting this lovely old chest white. Sometimes there is nothing like a classic white wash to give an old girl a new look! Would you agree? I have had these chests; there are two, since I was a young girl just out of home. My mum bought them for me and boy have they travelled to some places. Back when I lived in Sydney, I think I moved nearly every six months from the age of 18 to 33 years of age. I think they are tad sentimental!

  I think it looks much more beachy and modern now... I do love a restyle and revamp!
Thought I would share this snap showing a few of my favorite things/ objects. How I do love feathers, rope and hooks to decorate with!
Every week, I try to come up with a new way to express "Make do and style" on Instagram. Here is this weeks pic, I actually think this is my favorite so far. Join in the #makedoandstyle fun on instagram and twitter, anyone is welcome to play.

Thanks for popping by, I do hope your enjoying your weekend! Such lovely sunny weather here in Brisbane. Rach xx 

One more thing, the lovely Tanya from Scandi Coast Home has started a Saturday linky party. She is such a lovely girl, You simply must drop over and tell her I said Hi.
