Chest of Drawers

My grandson aka Granny's Love wanted his room decorated with cars and race type logos. I took his chest of drawers and painted it black on the sides and top and white on the drawers. Then I painted "roads" across all the drawers. Since he had lots of the McDonald's Happy Meal cars from the movie CARS, I took the cars and replaced all the drawer pulls with those Happy Meal cars.  It transformed the chest of drawers into a really cute new look for his room.

His room had two huge windows. I made curtains out of cars themed bed sheets and the valance out of the pillow cases. It was cheaper than buying enough ready made curtains for all those windows. Then from the party store we got the checker flag banners and stapled up around the entire top of his wall. After adding posters and other accents he had a custom decorated room for a money saving value.
