Sometimes in life you get what you wish for. I had wanted this cabinet from the first time I laid my eyes on it. It was vintage and full of dust but that did not deter me. What I thought would be an easy project turned out to be exactly the opposite.
This has to be from the Seventies and once housed an actual television inside those ornate doors. Our neighbor had given it to my dad and he kept it in the foyer but I felt it had potential ... I mean look at that scroll work. And so I wanted to revive this vintage TV cabinet.
What do you do when you have a room to transform on a minuscule budget? You Do It Yourself of course. But you also take into consideration the occupants of the room!
For the past two months I've been sharing various furniture makeover projects with you. And finally after all this sweat and toil, I am ready to show you the girls' mostly black and white bedroom in full.
I've included links to all the projects at the end of the post.
Spring is finally here and I have sprung into action trying to finish up the girl's bedroom. (You can see all of the bedroom makeovers at the end of this post.) My girls need as much storage as possible because the house doesn't have much in general. And more importantly they are girls, and girls need lots of storage!!
So when I spotted this lovely (shhh...my dad is a wealthy source of old neglected furniture) I instantly grabbed it and took it up to their room. You might even remember it when I shared the mirror makeover with you. Today I'm going to show you how I gave it a makeover just like Cinderella.
This certainly has turned into a busy month for me, between the furniture makeovers and finishing up the girls' bedroom.
And that is exactly what I am here to talk about today. The upcycling of the bed frames and their room progress!
This project has been in the works for months. I believe I started on it in October of last year. And what I thought would be an easy job quickly spiraled into a disaster. But we shall take it from the top. This is the story of a mid-century modern china cabinet that has been in my family since the 1960's. I know because I was there.
I had to give this china cabinet a makeover not because I wanted to but because I had to! Read on!
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
