oh my gosh, very very perfect upcycling! there are so many benefits to this!
-it's cheap
-it saves material that often ends up in landfills
-it's fun to do. crafty!
-you can change your furniture anytime you want with new paint, or a whole new set, if you like variety
-great for kids' furniture, because they'll outgrow it and you can just make them a new bigger one!

The possibilities are so endless as far a shelves, side tables, drawers go...

ive just joined this forum and this is one of the first things ive seen...
i just had to say i love it!!!!!!!
i think if you wanted to make this so it could hold heavier stuff you could create a honeycomb with toilet rolls cut to size and glued all over in between the inside and outside walls

I love how you have recycled the cardboard and made something functional. This is a great idea!

Awesome furniture! I am too trying to do something like this - together with the rest of my family we're making a night table. We also used the Camille Carton tutorial.

This I guess is only the start because we're absolutely stunned by the possibilities of making furniture just like we want, and with those cooooooool curves like you have in yours!

It's funny that most of the people making stuff like this are in France! Do you know about the Schmulb website? http://schmulb.com/

cheers! Rineke

Yes I knew this website Smiley

I have a lot of ideas for furnitures but as we are moving in a couple of months, I put it in hold. When I move, I will have a lot of card box to play with and this way I will make sure it fits our new place Smiley

Be prepared!! This summer, I will come back with a lot more furniture hahahaha. I plan of making some for my daughter's bedroom, and some for mine, and of course, I will have to make some for my work/craft area, to organize my ton of things!! The possibilities are endless, it seems! And you can make furniture that fits perfectly.

This is a big thing in France, yes, I saw a lot of websites about it, and I was really surprised there wasn't any here... That's why I posted at first. With all the talented crafters who comes here, I can't wait to see what will come!! I am sure someone will take it to the next level!

Back to my drawing pad... creativity never stops hahahaha
