Furniture upcycling # 2: the display cabinet

Here is another G Plan charity shop piece, this time it was updated using paint and wallpaper. Much quicker than painting all those triangles (previous post), and (hopefully) still quite effective! The most complicated bit was cutting the wallpaper to size and aligning it in the centre. Luckily, the pattern is quite forgiving and hides most of the mistakes... !

The book I was telling you about in the previous post is this one : Furniture Makeovers by Barbara Blair. It is a mine of useful information for anyone who would like to have a go at upcycling furniture, and there are also many ideas of styles and designs you could go for. Warmly recommended !
