Midnight Blue Chest of Drawers Transformation
This item was a slightly more tricky number than normal.
I collected it from a lady residing near Brick Lane who was uncluttering her house. It was, of course pretty filthy as standard, however, it also needed a lot more attention that I had anticipated. You can see on the photo that one side is quite badly damaged, so I needed to rebuild this section before commencing with the decoration. Additionally, the chest of drawers had been cut from a dresser, but not very well so the other side needed a good few millimetres shaving off one end to straighten it out.
Now, it was ready for makeover! I wanted to create a dark blue themed item, as I have just sold my other dark coloured bedside table. I like to keep a mix of colours and styles in stock and I haven't made a blue item before so thought it might be a nice challenge. I am rather pleased with the result. The piece of furniture is actually quite tall and thin, so therefore could easily fit into a living room space, rather than just a bedroom.
