We have an old traditional Welsh dresser which is used for glassware and crockery. The drawers and cupboards in the lower half are very useful. However the furniture is made of a very dark wood.

The overall appearance was always very dark and gloomy. We had various ideas – sell it; paint it; separate into two halves (it it two units placed together); or just paint the inside.

The best idea was to wallpaper inside the cupboard, so that the background for the glasses, pots etc is light and also attractively designed.

A verbena pattern was used. It was stuck on with double sided tape, and cut around the shelf supports. See the following photo image for detail of the furniture inside corners, the wallpaper is cut carefully around the supports for the shelves. The alternative is to wallpaper then put the supports back in, which is a lot more work.
