Painting the orange pine wardrobes

Not a sewing project at all, but I've been wanting to paint the built in orange pine wardrobes for a while.
The drawers in particular are beautifully and solidly made. The large wardrobe doors above are slightly warped and may be replaced in future.
For now though I have removed the drawers, sanded the frame and doors and undercoated them with Dulux Super Grip Undercoat, and will then be painting with Dulux Satinwood in Natural Calico.

Of course I've had to empty the wardrobes completely and my clothes are spread about in suitcases and on hanging rails with shoes in cardboard boxes, plus the weather has cooled a couple of degrees and bare legs and sandals now seem a bit chilly. I had a break yesterday evening, but try to do a bit each evening, hopefully being able to finish everything off at the weekend.

great colour choice. Bet it will make the room seem bigger and lighter once they are painted.
