Re-Love project before

This blog has given me so much over the last few years so giving back is something I’m increasingly conscious of.

The perfect opportunity to do so when Feast Watson (the folks who I worked with on my office makeover) got in touch about a charity collaboration. They’re chipping in a furniture allowance and some of their woodcare products and the eight participating bloggers revamp their chosen secondhand piece. The furniture will be auctioned off on eBay with all the proceeds going to the Salvo’s. How awesome is that?

I’ve scored this mid-century sideboard which has great bones but has definitely seen better days. I’m going to restore it to its former glory, with the addition of this funky wallpaper.

You can see the other seven ‘before’ pieces and follow our progress¬†over on the Feast Watson website or Pinterest board.

  • Ooh, very retro. Can’t wait to see the “After” shot!

    • Thanks Amanda! I’ll do a progress update next week and the ‘after’ will be revealed for the auction a couple of weeks after that :)

  • Heya Alicia
    Love your opening line and completely echo your sentiments. It will be so nice to see this baby restored with just a hint of fresh funk from that colourful wallpaper.

Have your say!
