Aventures of the Masked Canary

Shabby Chic upcycling

It had seen better days, was really getting in the way and had definitely served it’s purpose. I’m talking about the 1930s bedside cabinet which I had painted in vibrant blue and farmyard pig pink for the nursery.

I can’t take all the credit for the DIY, however I can for the styling! Here’s the final result, complete with vintage, embroidered curtain and Victorian-style stencil on a shabby chic pebble-grey painted background. I already had the materials used so the only cost was for the curtain wire and hooks at a whopping £2.19! 😉
