This blog is about a donated piece that wasn't all there. It was a really old armoire, unfortunately not all the pieces were there. So we took what we could of it and made other things , A "Redesign" if you will.
Here is the top and the bottom of the piece. Which is what we will be working with today.
First the bottom, my coworker is wonderful with wood, he made a flat top for it, then we bought foam and batting a wrapped all of that with the fabric. He painted the wood part white, and attached the upholstered top to the base. The scroll part is a drawer which adds storage and is pretty cool.
Next for the top of the piece. We decided to make it an architectural element easy peasy if you have the right person to do the job. He cut off the behind the scenes parts and all that was left was the front of the piece. Painted white and distressed it now can hang on the wall or over a doorway. Beautiful!
