A quick lick of paint and a sweet retro fabric lining later and here it is packed with all my goodies! ♥ £15 charity shop bargin! pretty retro lining stuffed with my stash! pretty lights to finish! ♥ Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to email a link to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

WOWWWWW, I love it, love it, love it. Great work there, Im very jealous!
thank you, I had to have it!! xx
I thoroughly enjoy your blog and I just took one look at this cabinet before reading the post and thought this is soooooooooo you!! There’s crochet gear, chicken books and of course the colour pink. Love it!
thank you, thats so nice of you to say! yes I seem to be well known for my pink addiction, much to my son’s displeasure! I honestly did try to do another colour but the pink went too well with my material! xxxx
Your work of Art, Creativity, and Imagination is truly a Blessing of a Gift from A B O V E. You highlighted, made it New, and very beautiful. Great Job, Teresa! Be Blessed, Mtetar
thank you so much Mtetar, I reckon you may be right, I didn’t mean to get the sideboard and had no room but here it is anyway! I always like to rescue things that may otherwise be thrown away, I can’t bear it! xxxx
You’re welcome! It’s the right thing to do for all the right reasons. It’s now your treasure. Be Blessed, Mtetar
thanks Mtetar. xxxxx
Teresa, you’re always welcome! Have a Blessed Weekend! Enjoy, Mtetar
It’s awesome. Your wonderful transformation of the sideboard makes me want to head to the flea market to search for old furniture that I could re-purpose.
thank you Sheryl, glad you think so, I always love finding old pieces of furniture, and giving it a revamp, I just need a bigger house! xxxx
Wow! You are so creative! Love the little lights…Are those crocheted flowers around them?
thank you! that would be an amazing idea! these are plastic flower fairy lights, but crochet flowers would be gorgeous, I feel another project coming on! xxxxx
OMG… i love the cupboard.. Ahhhh… so pretty.. and Thumbs up to the decoration.. 😉
oh so glad you like it, I couldn’t leave the poor old sideboard behind, now it’s got a new lease of life! x
Yup agree… and cheers to up-cycling.. and bringing life to unused items.. somethings it needs a little creativity for that.. 😉
That is fab! You do all the things I think of, but never quite get around to. I’m enjoying living vicariously through your creativity, thanks!
thanks, glad you like it! I have a bit of a problem with this kind of thing, no room! when I got this the kids just rolled there eyes, but I only paid £15 in a charity shop and even at Ikea you’d struggle to get something for that! x
Absolutely! Bet it will last longer too. We need to teach our children about longevity, enough of the throw away, lasts two seconds culture is what I say!
Oh, I LOVE what you did with it!! How crafty you are Teresa… but I already knew that!
thanks Lidia, glad you like it, not everyones cup of tea I know! xxxxx
It is amazing that you can see that from the original piece of furniture. I’m pretty sure I would have walked right by it.
It can be a bit of a prob, I really didn’t have room for it but I made it fit! I hate walking past stuff I have no room for, I need a shop! xxxx
Yes, you do need a shop actually 🙂 Would you be able to part with your creations though?
probably not! xxxxx
You have such a great imagination. I could not in a million years have thought of that. I do want one though 🙂
most people think I am bonkers but I can always see the result in my head! xxxxx
Bonkers is good!!
it so is! xxxxx
Great job, very pretty 🙂
thanks, glad you like it. xxxxxx
I LOVE IT Teresa! gorgeous! & PINK; the color I would have chosen too to keep my pretty things! 🙂 love the fabric too! So lucky, that you got found this pretty sideboard!
thanks Ingrid, I love it too, gotta stop myself somewhen! xxxx
So fun!!! Never too much pink, in my opinion. 😉 The shop idea is fabulous… crochet and re-finished furniture… all granny chic… I can totally picture it!
me too! I wouldn’t want to part with anything! xxxxx
Retro indeed now fully refashioned and looking good!
thanks, glad you think so! xxxxx
Look at this!!! How fun!! I still want to try my hand at that fabric covering but I haven’t found the time yet!! It just looks so great!!
thanks Melissa, glad you like it! xxxxxxxxxx
