Well, it has been awhile since I have blogged...sorry about that. With the holidays, things have been so busy around here and projects have slowed down a bit as well. This month we have completed one project though, and that is an antique wardrobe makeover.
We bought this wardrobe on an online garage sale website and it was in very rough condition. It looked like this when we got it and was slowly falling apart.
We bought this piece to re-sell and it turned out beautifully. My husband began by completely taking the rotting wood off of the back and replacing it with large panels. He then added shelves to the piece as people today need pieces like this for storage, but not usually to hang clothes. We though the shelves would make this piece a bit more versatile. We had full intentions to paint the outside a scuffed up royal blue and the inside a crisp white, but once we sanded down the wood we just couldn't bring ourselves to paint over it. So we stained and lacquered it.
It turned out beautifully and is for sale. Check out more pieces of furniture here!
