Elegant living room The wallpaper is the starting point for the elegant look in this living room. Hanging the wallpaper in the alcoves stops it from overpowering the room, but still allows it to stand out.
I don't really think this is good 'upcycling'. Danish modernist style stuff is fine like it is. :P Unless the front was all scratched up or something this was pretty pointless and damaged a perfectly good piece of furniture. There are piles of actually ugly furniture which can be improved (see: overly clunky repro colonial-ish stuff), I wish people would leave the nice modernist stuff alone.
