Mum spends years disappointed with colour of drawers then realises it's protective film

funny stuff 20/03/2019

While shopping for a new set of drawes for her bedroom, a mum was frustrated as she had to settle for a 'blue' coloured drawer rather than her preffered grey.

For three years she made do with the blue colour, but then one day as she was doing a deep clean of her bedroom, she noticed the corner of the drawers coming away at the end slightly.

The woman slowly started to peel the blue colour off of the drawers before she clicked and realised that she was actually peeling away at a blue protective peel that had been covering her drawers the whole time.

What was even better, was that the drawer colour underneath was the grey she originally wanted.

While the revelation came as a bit of a shock, the mum says it's like they've got a brand new unit that now matches their other furniture 'without spending a penny'.

I never had any suspicions the blue colour was a protective film.

'I knew there was white tape along the top of each draw which I thought was protection and would eventually need pulling off.'

'Then I as deep cleaning the bedroom the other day and I was down near the cabinet vacuuming and I thought 'while I'm down here, I may as well finally peel off the tape'.

'But as I started to peel, I noticed the blue film had lifted and I panicked and thought I had ruined unit.

But I just kept peeling and it kept coming off. Underneath it was a really nice grey. It looks amazing.

'I bought the cabinet in mid-2016 and the actual cabinet they had on display was the same blue colour.

'I asked if they did it in another colour and they said no. I didn't really want a blue cabinet but I thought it was the closest to our bedroom that I'd seen.

'The bedroom is grey and silver so the cabinet actually matches it better now. It's like we've got a brand new piece of furniture and we haven't spent a penny.'
