Upcycle what you love: the most beautiful table

1 year ago
Number of Participants: 1

Once I fell in love. With a table. A beautiful solid wood table with turned legs.

Unfortunately it was what we call an “attic trove” and in a very bad condition. I bought it anyway because I wanted to support our local social store. The next weekend I spend with polishing and coating (and sweating and cursing), but the result was brilliant. You may not see it properly in the picture, but my little attic table turned out to be a real beauty: a nice whisky like shade, green drawer buttons and a little bit of imperfection. Literally everybody asks me about it when visiting our home.

Conclusion: Be courageous, everybody can do upcycling.

When I think about my childhood I think about sitting on the branches of the old apple tree in our garden and reading books about animals. Now grown up I spend my time working as a philologist, walking the dogs of the nearby animal sanctuary and exploring our beautiful German forests.
