Sustainability and non wastage in design and decor is now more important than ever. I’m slowly taking steps to embrace this for my home.
I’ve been wanting to get a chest of drawers for the corner of this room to store my props. However, I haven’t found anything suitable.
I was really pleased to discover Made By Raphael who restores and upcycle second hand furniture.
I’ve been looking for a narrow chest of drawers in an ombre collection of pastel hues. Raphael showed me his stock of vintage furniture. There were many beautiful mid century modern pieces, but I wanted something simple.
I knew instantly the chest of drawers above was what I wanted.
We then discussed colours, and I told Raphael that I wanted 3 ombre shades of pastel pink and yellow. I left him to pick the shades. Judging by his past work, I knew he would pick the colour palette that I like. I was so thrilled when I unwrapped the drawers that Raphael himself delivered to me.
The quality of the painting was amazing.
It just looks perfect in this corner of my workspace don’t you think? I’m so pleased with how it had turned out. Now, I can tidy away all that mess I previously had on the floor. The colours are soothing and so in line with the aesthetic of my home. If you are looking for something similar, I highly recommend Made by Raphael. Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my upcycled chest of drawers. Have a lovely day.
