It is time!

Drumroll people. I have been working on this drawer cabinet since the beginning of January. Actually, in my head, I have been working on this thing since I inherited it from my ex-flatmate who immigrated to Namibia.

The story:
After the flatmate had left, he also left a few of his belongings, among them a drawer cabinet, a bedside table and a bed, all painted in the same blueish baby puke colour. He asked that I donate them to a charity, but I thought I would hang on to them for a little while if friends wanted to stay over in my flat. Eventually, after moving to another place, living there for six months and waiting to move into the new flat, I decided that its time I start with my do it yourself (more like cry-it-yourself) project. (I gave the bed and bedside table to our gardener.)

I had searched far and wide, and by wide I mean I even went to another city, for the perfect glass knobs, and after I found the most beautiful ones at MegaMica, I bought six, because that was what I could afford.

At the end of the month I went back, and shock-horror, there were only two knobs. Eventually, I got paid again, went back again and....drumroll again...may I present to you my finished drawer cabinet. Tada!
