Wanted to do this without moving or emptying unit. Chalk paint out....garden shades did not cover would need stripping down ... stain not sure so today used vynil I have, the unit now looks clean and tidy just needs a frame with legs as this is its problem to begin with ; the whole unit was buckling because weight is not thaken correctly on the legs, especialy with loads of books at the end!
I dont like it ... maybe should do shelf and see. Think it should be darker?
I now want to put a target ring to one side and do planes on the wall they were part of original design. Si just rolled his eyes!
