I have been asked to enter the best competition EVER! I’ve been given £100 by Direct Blinds to buy and renovate a piece of furniture of my choice. Amazing.
I want you to see the ‘before’ shot of the piece I have bought from eBay for £30. I wanted to buy something that I need so this is going to be perfect in my new home office for craft storage. It’s a great shape (love the legs), I like the glass doors and it’s a very practical size. However, in this space, particularly as it is next to the window, it seems to suck every ounce of light from the room. If it were in the sitting room or hallway, I might keep it as it is but it is not the lovely teak you might think it is from the photos; it is actually quite a nasty dark, orangey veneer.
So, it needs to be lightened, a little dash of character and some pegboard to go above the cabinet. This is going to be storage heaven!
Entries close on July 15th so check back to see what the piece will eventually look like.
I’d love to know what you would do to this piece too! Leave me a comment 😉
