This friday find is made up of bits and pieces I already have in my house. I haven’t set foot in a thrift store in weeks so I’m afraid I have no new things to show you. But, I’m excited to announce that the annual council clean up is coming to my suburb soon, so I hope to have a fresh new haul of scavenged items very soon.
Most of you have seen my white IKEA sideboard by now. I think every person on the planet has one. I have about six. One in each of my children’s rooms, one to hold crates of toys, one as a side board in my bedroom. And on and on. The Expedit shelving unit has got to be one of the most versatile pieces of furniture ever. But, sometimes I need a change. Ok, lets face it, I always need a change. I didn’t have another side board to substitute, so I made one of my own with small pieces of furniture I had around the house.
I used my side of the road find table, a bed side cupboard, my computer desk, and a small wine rack cupboard, all spray painted red. The matching colour gives a cohesive look, but you could use different colours for a more eclectic look. I think most of use have lots of small pieces of furniture scattered around the house. This is a stylish way to create one useful piece.
