HOW TO TAKE BORING TO BEAUTIFUL - tall white sideboard







I get asked often where I get the appliques I use on my furniture projects.





There is not one simple answer to that question. 
This fabulous center piece above was bought at a yard sale in the summer. It is actually a picture frame with a flat back.
The cardboard that was in it was removed,
then simply screwed to this door panel from the back side.

You can see the before photo below, the door had no glass any more so I replaced the missing bit with a new wood panel.


The inside of the full length drawer just wasn't going to pass
 muster. Ink stains on plywood to the right and the red felt
 lining that had started to shed on the left, it was gross!
Never mind the large number of leftover
sewing pins wedged in the 4 corners.

***************************************************************

All the doors went from flat to fab with a bit of simple 
molding trim and perfectly placed appliques.
The 2 side door appliques were found at a local RE-STORE.




The drawer and cupboard all got a pretty blue and white damask wallpaper lining. I found the damask print at Home Depot in BLACK, LIGHT BLUE, and LIGHT GREEN, like below.

HEATHER's CABINET


Here is the inside all prettied up with the light blue.
The back was falling off so I decided to take it all the way off to line the interior. Much easier this way.

  6. Add this to Kristy Genius ideas. I would never think to use a picture frame for decorative moulding on furniture, but why not?
