This is the first one of the series. As we just moved and were left with quite a few unwanted furniture pieces from previous owners, we decided to give them a second chance, and work a bit of magic using simple tools.
Main component: We loved proportions and colour of Trollsta sideboard but it was a bit too “fancy” for us and the lace-like detail seemed a bit like it might date fast.
Target: create long piece of storage made of two trollsta side boards for living room
Action: decorative metal base with legs was taken off and replaced with wheels/ casters, added “handles” are made from black rubber sitting in the purpose drilled holes finished with black plastic capping; for more more office like look we added letters and numbers sprayed with black paint for all doors and drawers.
Old dresser and chunky sideboard next...
