Mom Peels Off Blue Protective Film From a 3-Year-Old Cabinet and Gets a Surprise

For three years this mother-of-three had a cabinet in her home, completely unaware that it was covered with a colored protective film.

Kayleigh Greer, 35, from the United Kingdom, said she bought the cabinet for about $200 from retailer B&Q in 2016 as a TV stand for her bedroom. She wanted to buy a gray one but ended up buying a blue one because that was the only color in stock.

At the time, she was disappointed because it didn’t match their grey and silver bedroom, reported the Daily Mail.

The couple from Stevenage, Hertfordshire noticed a white tape on top of each drawer, but they decided to leave it alone. Greer said she thought the white tape was protective and would need to be eventually pulled off.

“Then I was 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,'” she said.

Greer, who is a national sales manager, started to peel off the protective tape, and she found that it was connected to a blue film covering the entire cabinet. “I never had any suspicions the blue color was a protective film,” she told Daily Mail.

Oh dear! ????????

“But as I started to peel, I noticed the blue film had lifted and I panicked and thought I had ruined [the] 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 color.

“I asked if they did it in another color 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,” she said.

How did she not realise? ????????

As Greer peeled off the last bit of the blue plastic, she hurried downstairs to show her husband Darren all the blue plastic.

Darren, who was looking after their children, Taylor, 8, Greyson, 17 months, and Felix, 16 weeks, ran upstairs to see what Greer had discovered.

“He asked me where it had come from and when I told him it had come from the cabinet he burst out laughing before rushing upstairs to see what I’d done.

“He thinks it’s amazing. He prefers the cabinet now to before,” said Greer.

Mom Reveals How to Clean Oven with Dishwashing Tablet

She added, “I didn’t think it would be that easy.”
