Upcycling – A chest of drawers for the nursery

We inherited a hideous orange coloured wooden chest of drawers when my grandmother moved into a nursing home. It didn’t go with our decor at all, but was sturdy, and the drawers were large, and we needed the extra storage space. I couldn’t let it last a week in my house looking like that, so I painted it white immediately (using a gloss acrylic paint).

It has been a wonderful additional storage unit for a good 3 years year now.

Its usefulness is now being extended … it has been turned into a clothes drawers for the baby’s nursery.

It’s usefulness is now being extended as clothes drawers for the baby’s nursery. Being all white was a little boring, so I decided to jazz it up a little by adding some wallpaper on the front of the top drawers.

It will officially go on the market next week, so I thought I would give you all a sneak peek (I just got emailed the photos taken yesterday – what else was I going to do with them?). So here’s your extremely privileged preview….

Already I have shared my love for using recycled items in my home in a recent post, however I forgot to share the variety of recycled storage solutions I have collected over the years. I have found my solutions in the most unlikely places.
