Kayleigh Greer, mom-of-three bought the cabinet in the summer of 2016. She wanted a gray one but was forced to buy a blue one as it was all they had! But it had been gray all along!
In a hilarious turn of events, a mother who went through three years utterly disappointed that her blue cabinet didn't match the rest of her furniture was stunned to find that the blue color was really a layer of a defensive film that she hadn't stripped off and that her three-cabinet unit was gray from the beginning!
Kayleigh Greer, 35, purchased the $170 cabinet from B&Q in the late spring of 2016 to go about as a TV stand in her and significant other Darren's room.
The mother-of-three, from Stevenage, Hertfordshire said she had inquired as to whether it came in some other hues yet was compelled to go for the blue one.
Therefore, she ended up buying the blue cabinet simply on the grounds that it was the only single piece left in stock - in spite of it not coordinating with their gray and silver bedroom.
And even though the couple saw some protective tape along the top edge of every cabinet, they still chose to leave it as it is.
In any case, as of late the mum-of-three was carrying out a deep clean of the house and she finally chose to remove the protective tape. Kayleigh, a national sales head, began to strip the tape away and it fell off in a blue plastic film that had been over the whole dresser the entire time.
While the disclosure came as somewhat of a shock, Kayleigh says it resembles they have a fresh-out-of-the-box new unit that presently coordinates with their other furniture 'without spending a penny'. Kayleigh said, "I never had any suspicions the blue color 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 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 added.
"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. 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 concluded.
In the wake of stripping the film off the whole unit, Kayleigh ran down the stairs with the blue plastic piled in her arms - much to the shock of Darren, 48.
The dad, who had been taking care of their boys Taylor, 8, Greyson, 17 months, and Felix, four months, hurried upstairs to see what Kayleigh had done but was likewise pleasantly astounded.
