TV cabinet from an old sideboard
I realised that I never posted this little upcycle I did a few months ago. I purchased a really solid good quality but rather dull sideboard from a local lady who runs a junk business. I get the goodies delivered to my door, so what could be better. That's the way to furniture shop!
I'm afraid I didn't get a chance to stage the cupboard prettily for a photo shoot before it came into use as our TV cabinet, but you get the idea.
This is what it looked like before...
I love to paint my own artwork, but I also enjoy using vintage graphics, especially on furniture. This design is from the Graphics Fairy. There are tons to choose from on her site, and even more if you go for a paid membership.
I traced the design onto the doors using carbon paper, I then hand painted it using a mix of chalk paint colours to make this soft grey.
I'm rather pleased with it!
Lots of other projects waiting to be done still...as always!
