I love that wall paper you're dreaming of, Benita. Looking forward to see if you put it up :)

Åh vilken fin tapet på dörrarna, en riktig färgklick man blir glad av. Jag uppskattar dina inlägg om skruvförvaring etc, tycker det är perfekta tips.

Thank you so much, Benita!

With such detailed information I think I’ll have no problem to build a similar wardrobe, at least I’ve no doubts after reading your explanation a couple of times. If I ever build one I’ll send you some pics. The doors will probably be painted white or neutrals. Or wallpapered them if I find a soft pattern I like.

Thanks again. :)

Du är TOPPEN med allt du gör. Du ligger 10 år före mig som home owner. Tack för detta tips. Jag behöver göra något sådant nere i vår källare när de gamla garderoberna ska bort. KRAM!

benita: do you ever work w/ the kind of boards that are like press board w/ that laminate ironed on? i have been painting some furniture for my daughters (found on a driveway w/ 'FREE' sign!) made of this stuff. it has been interesting. i sanded it (tried to), primed it, then have been painting. to make sure the paint STAYS, i'm planning on putting a coat of polyurethane ..wondering if i need 2 coats. also never used it before..scared. brush or roll? or dab w/ cloth or sponge?? the girls wanted polka dots and stripes in the colors of their room! very cute. i wonder what your advice would be on making polka dots? we did it but it is NOT professional quality. the best way was w/ template paper. but the paint gets it so soaked, you have to make a new template for every row of dots. in the end, i used cotton balls but it's messy...my daughters like it anyway. i'm not too proud of how it turned out but if we wanted to change it...just another coat of paint, i guess! and they love it so heck. =) have a great day! kt

I haven't ever tried painting those kinds of boards but it sounds like you're doing the right thing there.

For the dots I think I'd have tried it the other way around; painting the color of the dots as a base color and then masking the dots off with dot stickers, painting over everything with the color you want around the dots and then peeling the stickers off. I guess the problem would be to find the stickers in large enough quantity for the design you're after... If small dots is what you want you can use office dot stickers. I love them for all different kinds of projects :)

You could also just paint the color you want as the base and use vinyl wall art stickers for the dots. I'm sure I've seen dot sets in several color combinations.

Good Luck! :)
