Facelift: Armadio

11 Jun

A while back I received this old sticker-covered cupboard from a friend who was getting rid of it.  It took me three hours to get the hundreds of stickers off the cupboard doors (my fingertips were raw and bloody by the end). After the de-stickering I gave it a few coats of white paint.

I  then ordered some wallpaper samples from an online shop in Holland.And this is the result.For now I’ve left the big cupboard door white.  Good idea or would it look better with wallpaper?A great way to brighten up and bring new life to old furniture!

    looooovvvvve. omg, love so much. Do not do the big door, leave it white. I love this cupboard (ikea) but they don’t sell it anymore here. 😦

    supermooi gelukt
    echt echt waar
    laat de grote deur maar wit,dan komen de kleine deurtjes beter tot hun recht

    Waw Jill, again a beautiful project … I would put paper on the door too … I like lots of colour … but apparently I am the only one who thinks so! Makes me question my taste!!
    I will send you a mail with news from us soon!! xxxx

    I would leave it painted a solid colour….just not white. Maybe the same yellow that’s in the little dots on the orangey wallpaper? Love your latest project…beautiful!

    Nice! Chevron for the big door! XD Or you could (depending on what’s in front of it) setup a mirror there (although the inside of the door is better for that) or even a really nice large print..
