With all the furniture stores sprouting all over, we have an influx of generic furniture that tends to lack personality. Don’t get me wrong the furniture is as useful as they come, but when in your space, you want it to look like yours, no?
From the Mombasa Flat Update, i found one such piece of furniture at the dining area.
I got some decorative paper from Nakumatt Nyali (the matt paper quality and NOT the shiny version), some glue, a pair of scissors, and a ruler to take measurements.
I took out the glass, luckily the cabinet had grooves that the glass would roll off from. This made the project so much easier. I took measurements of length and width. Measured out the paper and cut out.
With the glue i carefully stuck the paper at the end of the cabinet.
With some rearrangement of the cutlery and some artwork at the top, it was done. I chose not to put back the glass, wells ave for the bottom one which refused to come off. I thought it looked better without.
What are your thoughts?
Keep it DIY?
