Designer hands on second hand - an upcycling collab between vintage store Myrorna and some of sweden's most creative designers.
Ladies and gents, get ready for some serious upcycling! Now, we love a good second hand store, you never know how an old piece of furniture can surprise you. Teaming up with Myrorna and a bunch of creative designers we got into the fabulous DIY mood for a cool workshop in Stockholm.
Myrorna also got some hands dirty with us. Their take on this seemingly old and forgotten table was to add a little unexpected item that can easily be a conversation piece for any dinner party. Adding new tiles to a surface of a table was a fun and quick fix that uplifted this piece and gave it a much needed shine.
BEFORE & AFTER
Grab a strong guy(the tiles are heavy) and let's get some shopping done:
✓ 25/25 cm tiles
✓ hammer and a small chisel (to take out the old pieces)
✓ cement (to fill in the gaps and place the tiles on the surface of the table)
✓ laquer (to refresh the sides of the table)
✓ Harald 700 Old Bronze pegs
They started by removing the old tiles from the surface of the table. This didn't take as long as you might think so maybe after 15 minutes of hammering that chisel they were done. While crafty hands were using force, other crafty hands were preparing the cement to lay the new and improved tiles. Let's check them out.
So we hope you enjoyed this makeover as much as we did! Saw something that you like? The table is available for auction starting February 1st, with all profits going to the Salvation Army's social work.
