Up up cycling

I normally buy really nice items with minimal scratches, a good colour and avoid anything that might need a lot of work as I have a day job and I have kids – so time is very limited to work on a project. However, I came across a nice looking Austinsuite Sideboard that had some of its Veneer chipped off which is pretty much irreparable so needed something different doing to it. For some reason I bought it and now I’m thinking over my options of what to do, so I turned to Pinterest (of course!).

Option 1 – Decoupage 

There are some lovely examples and here are a few of my favourites:

I would have loved to do this, but realistically I felt my skills were lacking and  I think their probably takes a lot more time and a big clear space to do well.

Option 2 – paint a pattern

I really liked the idea of a pattern like these:
But again, time and skills put me off…

Option 3 – paint it all

As it says on the tin!



Option 4 – paint some of it…

I think this is the one! Spookily, someone has done the exact same thing with the same sideboard that I have…


Watch this space to see how I get on…

I love interiors! I've always enjoyed styling my home and my husband will tell you I'm always moving things around and trying something new. My favs include Mid Century Modern and Ecclectic mixes of contrasting themes such as classical design and pop art.
