Upcycling projects

This is one of my absolute favourite things to do! I have done quite a few bits of furniture now and I’m truly addicted!!! I know its become a bit cliché in recent years and you can’t swing a cat on ebay without hitting Annie Sloan covered wooden furniture but when you do it yourself it is massively satisfying! My total favourite is when it is something you’ve found on a street corner somewhere and snaffled it up for FREE!!!

Luckily for me I have a very long suffering husband who is now quite used to being sent off somewhere with the car because I’ve spotted something dumped out on the street.

This is my newest find, beautiful little cupboard missing one of its handles. I think its probably 1950’s or 60’s (although I am no expert) The top is tin or aluminium or something like that! If anyone knows more about this type of cupboard please tell me!! 

This one is currently being stripped while I plan what colour to repaint it, I can’t decide right now between just keeping it white or going for a pop of colour. I think I’m going to keep this one so it needs to fit my home colour scheme. It would be great as craft supplies storage (isn’t everything??)
Anyway, watch this space, I’ll do an update as soon as possible!

    I’ve got a blog post scheduled for Wednesday about an upcycled chair – hoorah for chalk paint, I say! Look forward to seeing what you do with this lovely cupboard.
