Antiqued Victorian Sideboard

Antiquechic to the rescue again, this time it was a Victorian mahogany chiffonier base in distress. At various stages of it’s transformation it may not have been the only one! It required a lot of TLC, and then came the tricky decision of how to upcycle it. It made sense to celebrate it’s age and varied history, rather than fight it, which is when we had the idea of decoupaging the doors with layers of wallpaper, rather like an old wall where the paper had peeled away to reveal the one beneath. I then blended several different shades of green and neutral paint to build up the finish, again mimicking a piece that has been painted many times over the years. To borrow a phrase, it’s now ‘perfectly imperfect’ 🙂
