Upcycling furniture: chest of drawers

Found at a yard sale in the Coquitlam area near Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada, this piece was originally painted pink, one of the large drawers missing. The owner was part of a local Search and Rescue team, I turned that into a title for this chest of drawers.My never failing cabinet maker, Alex Marcuzzi from North Vancouver, rebuilt the missing drawer, and Ted Martin in Pitt Meadows realised my design idea of triangles added to the back of this piece of furniture. I wasn’t really thinking of a connection between triangles and mountains, but looking at the title – why not…
