Don’t ignore old furniture because it’s brown and boring. This is how to update a tired vintage cabinet using a beautiful bird feature.
Reduce, reuse, recycle.
Not all old wooden furniture needs painting. But if that old furniture is no longer beautiful and most importantly if no one wants it, then giving it a new lease of life is important.
It’s about making our furniture relevant to now and something someone would want in their home.
I bought this cabinet from a charity shop for £10. It has dovetail joints and a few dings which show its history.
