I had two reall
y old wardrobes that I had painted white,they wre solid, had a few curly features, proper locks on the doors and good strong rails .
2 years ago I had new carpets all over, all the furniture had to go out for the fitting. My son said in his wisdom "don.t put these wardrobes back in the bedroom , out them, they,re old"!!!
Ever compliant, I said o,k . So I bought 2 wardrobes from Ikea , browm . Now I,m in the throes of painting them white . They have no character at all . I,m trying to customise them . I bought some wooden hearts off the internet. I shall be putting them on the doors .
There must be thousands with Ikea wardrobes , I feel onlyI had my really, really shabby chic, utility world war two wardrobes .
I might yet go round the charity shops looking for vintage . Son, isn,t as old as I am ,what made him think he knew better . I,m not a new person , I like old,tatty,shabby ,character and tradition.
Iv,e really set the seed in my head now about looking out for replacements.
