I have this idea that I am going to give my apartment a new look, when it comes to furniture & paint. This is my first project.I have this reading area/corner in my living room, where I have a chair ( which I also plan to replace with another more comfortable one later), & a magazine holder, but it seems that something is missing.
As it is right now it’s not very cosy, so my first project, is to make my reading area/corner more cosy & attractive to sit in & read.
Since I moved out, almost all my furniture has been from Ikea, not that there is anything wrong with furniture from Ikea, I just reached a stage in life where I think it is time for some changes, & get a more rustic look rather than the clean look my apartment has now.
I hope you know what I mean, I need some furniture that looks a bid more old & worn out, instead than new & clean!
For my reading corner project I found these three apple crates, I think the would look good as a table/bookcase, but first they need a lovely hand!
My plan is to give them some kind of oil, so the get a bit darker look, I am very into the dark wood look. I will show you the result of the apple crates & my reading corner later on…….
