Furniture {reincarnated} : Filigree Armoire

2.14.2011

A friend recently sent me a link to the blog of one of her good friends. She knew that I would love some of the work that Kate had done... and she was right. So many great things on her blog... but this particular one has to be my favorite.

She was inspired by this Armoire from Anthropologie (was $1898 but no longer available):

She found this for only $150:

After coming up with a design, choosing a paint color, and some hard work....

Kate has her own version for a fraction of the price. She only spent about $300 (but she did let me know what it was very labor intensive and she didn't have to pay for use of the CNC machine- which would add to the cost):


Go here to read more about the process.

I also loved this page of 20 sketches that Kate did on how to revamp this Ikea Malm chest:


Kate lives in the Atlanta area and would love to help you with a project. She gives consults on {reincarnating} a piece of furniture that you already have or you can tell her what you are looking for and she can do it for you! You can contact her here. Great job, Kate!
