Modern Storage Cabinet Hack

Today I’m sharing how to you make a modern storage cabinet by upcycling an old kitchen cabinet! It feels like forever since I’ve repurposed or refinished something I’ve thrifted but living really close to a ReStore out here in Colorado always has me in there looking for inspiration for new pieces.

I had originally been looking for a small bookshelf that I could make doors for to turn into a storage cabinet but I was wandering through the kitchen cabinet section a few weeks ago and realized that some of the upper cabinets would be perfect for something like that – plus then I wouldn’t even have to make the doors! So I snagged one with solid wood doors for $15 and used some leftover paint from the kitchen makeover and ended up with this little beauty! I think I’m going to add shelves inside eventually so I can store shoes in there. Since small apartments don’t give you much space for storage.plant next to wood cabinet with minimal decor on topWhat you need for the modern storage cabinet:
