Modern Storage Cabinet Hack

green and wood storage cabinet styled with plants and decorIt 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 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.green and wood storage cabinet styled with plants and decorWhat you need:
