Upcycled buffet sideboard

Buffet.jpegJust finished my second furniture upcycle! I found this buffet on the side of the road dumped and a little worse for wear. I believed it had good bones though and when cleaned up and it's bits were put back together, it proved me right.

 

So I cleaned, sanded, painted and sealed with a gloss. I also lined the drawers with the chevron pattern wallpaper available at Bunnings (ok everything is from Bunnings!).

 

My brush technique still needs work but I saved this piece from landfill and now it will be used and loved.

 

My painting skills will get better - I keep telling myself 'Practice and tomorrow you'll be better than today!'

@rubytuesday1953  Well done. Looks damn fine to me. I did almost exactly the same. The before one is not exactly the same unit, just used for comparison. I love during up old furnitureWooden TV cabinet 17.3.19.jpg20190303_192306.jpg20190312_141948.jpg20190317_141900.jpg

That looks awesome! Redoing furniture is addictive. I'm already doing a new piece with the next one lined up! I love the backing you've used. Is it wallpaper?

Lovely projects @DanaR and @rubytuesday1953.

 

Have you seen the upcycled hutch in the latest episode of the Make It Happen series? Might inspire your next projects.
