So what a manic month January turned out to be! I didn’t get chance to finish my Rast hack….
So the first part and inspiration is here
So after the filler had dried, gave it a quick rub down, I then attached a new surface and piece of trim for the front to hide the gap. I didn’t take a picture of this but you will see it in the after picture. The new surface is held on with PVA and a made it a bit of a weird shape so the finished hack fits around a phone socket we have on the wall.
Before I painted the main part of the unit I stained the sides of the drawers and handles with a dark wood stain.
Then straight in to paint… I didn’t use a primer/undercoat. Again, my world I can prime if I want to…. I wanted to use up some paint I had spare from another project so I used that as a base coat…
So this is the results after the first coat…
And here is the result in situ!
I love it, and it fits perfectly in the nook!
What do you think?!
