I got this amazing wooden drawer system (I honestly have no idea what it's called!)  from freecycle.  Grin Its was super handy, and I loved everything about it, except how it looked. I lived with it for ages, but a few days ago I decided I couldn't look at it a day longer!
Here is a teaser pic: (So I dont get a before pic as the thumbnail!)  Wink

I dont have a good pic of it before, but you can see it here, next to the PC:

I was going to sand it all down, put was to lazy, so I just painted straight over the top...  Roll Eyes

I did the drawers first, they are free hand, with small Henna designs on them, also done freehand.

Here is a better pic of the drawers:

It didn't take to long in the end, or, I should say, It didn't tka me as long as I thought it would, and I am quite pleased with it. Some of the deasigns are a little wonky, but I didnt make any huge mistakes, so for that I am hugely grateful!!

What do you think?

Not only is this wonderful, as soon as I get the pin it button on this computer, it is pinned.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
