I came across these lovely wardrobes whilst on a recent trip to Rotterdam. My brother was decorating the nursery for their 2nd child and asked me to come over to decorate, and paint 5 Amsterdam style wardrobes.

4 painted and 1 to go, I love the colors they picked

They had been looking for suitable nursery furniture for some time and came across these wardrobes online, but they carried a hefty price tag of £995 each, so purchasing 5 was just too expensive. 

They searched the internet for alternatives and came across a local retired carpenter who made a wardrobe for his grand daughter as a birthday gift. Once their frends and family saw the finished article, orders began to come and he started to manufacture 3 versions of the Amsterdam wardrobe from a 2x2ft shed in his garden.

I always love a challenge so made some sketches, took lots of pictures, enlisted the help of a friend and viola, a lovely handmade piece of furniure for my spare room.

My DIY version in duck egg blue

Amsterdam Style!

The possibilities are endless for all types of diferent designs, Brighton house or maybe a New England style wardrobe? Not only are they perfect for childrens wardrobes, but make a great storage space for small areas in any room.

Would love to hear your thoughts, plus different design ideas. MDF is a great product and the possibiliies are endless, look out for my further MDF home projects!
