Old goes bold

So, you've read the feature on page 20 of the reVamp issue and now you're feeling bold about revamping Granny's furniture? Follow these links for some wild ideas:

You have a teenage son and a Louis XV walnut armoire? Yes, it's a match made in heaven. Give him a can of spraypaint and carte blanche, and see if he can match this feat by Burke and Hazledon.

Jimmy Martin managed to wreak a pretty fabulous update to this old-style cocktail cabinet, I reckon.

I mean, who actually wants a grotty old gilt frame when Squint Limited can come up with something like this?

Nobody at Elle Deco will take responsibility if you decide to stick Ouma's sideboard on a pyre, but if you want to make like Maarten Baas did in his Smoke collection for Moooi, just make sure you're not wearing nylon or false eyelashes at the time!

Oh yes - I like it! That frame from Squint is great.
