Our cottage was built in 1911 and has the original built in cupboards in the dining room either side of the fire. The storage is a real bonus and where I keep my china . The shelves were covered in 1960s wall paper and it was in need of a cheap refresh.
We bought a large PVC table cloth from a budget store for £3.99 and cut it to fit each shelf.
I painted the inside of the cupboard with white paint. Everything at home is painted white.
Above is the shelf before with very tatty paper and the new covering.
The bottom cupboard is for ‘dog stuff’ and that had a tidy up too. In the spirit of make do. And mend, I think that was a successful refurb and now my vintage china has a much more suitable home.
Some household improvements are really quick and easy. As always, we looked for an affordable way to keep our home nice.
