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.
Never again will your bedroom look dull. And just wait until you see the before pics, you will not believe that this beauty used to be so boring. Madeleine used her designer vision to create a nordic deco piece by adding some classy accessories.
So, ready for the big reveal? Ta-daaa!
Want to make your own? Here is what she used:
✓ an old chest of drawers
✓ paint and roller
✓ Theodor 120 Gold pegs
✓ golden metallic strips
✓ small metal saw
✓ brass polish since we are going to use the old handles
Why not take advantage of her presence and gather up some cool tips & tricks for our upcycling enthusiasts:
1. Why do you consider upcycling important and why do you like it?
The main reason is of course because we need to protect our nature and our environment. I like it because it gives you a opportunity to put in your personality and also make something the used to be beautiful, beautiful again.
2. What are the 3 top things to look for when shopping in a second hand store?
Shapes and or fabrics you like.
3. What are your favorite accessories/tools to use when doing a DIY project?
Definitely adding different metals, stones and of course color.
4. What do you think are some interesting trends to follow up in vintage shopping?
Right now the a big trend is dark wood, which you easily can find in furniture from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. The 70’s is overall a large trend right now and you can find lots of furniture from the 70’s when vintage shopping.
So we hope you enjoyed this makeover as much as we did!
