CHANGING THE SHAPE OF FURNITURE - shabby white three drawer


I'm not really happy when I just paint furniture. Every artist has something they
specialize in and enjoy doing. Sometimes when I look at a piece I see a different shape that it should be or something is missing. These pieces are also broken or unusable the way they
are, which makes me want them more. It becomes my thing to recreate it it again. For this project, a little three drawer cabinet. perfect for a little girl's room,
I added 4 different salvaged pieces to change it's shape.







 This was one of those pieces that most people wouldn't just
 toss out for no reason, it looked fairly handsome but the
 devil was in the details and none of the drawers worked. The
 first thing I did was to repair them and the roller mechs they
 glide on. Lots of spacing issues and screws missing. Then it
 was time to add 2 carved legs on the front, these were
 salvaged from a vintage sofa that was just too far gone. The
 other 2 pieces I added were the curvy wings you can see
 below attached to the sides. They are salvaged from another
 donor piece, some might recognize them as the apron from
 the bottom of a dresser.

I do not have a true before pic but this photo shows how different it looks after the sides are added.

This trick of adding something to the sides isn't always an option, but thinking out side the box is.
