I have been wanting to convert one into a craft/school supply cabinet. We have these supplies, scattered thru out different places in the house, and I saw on Pinterest, some armoires turned home office. Why not, do one for the kids?? Of course you could make it a mini-office too.
So, since the furniture was free, I decided to splurge a little on the paint. I used Annie Sloan Old White, and regular chalkboard paint on the inside doors, in a slate gray. I found some cheapy, ready made, black shelves. My hubby cut those down, to fit inside the cabinet. I changed out the hardware, added some metal numbers to the front doors, and mounted a vintage pencil sharpener on one door. I organized supplies into some different containers, like metal buckets, jars, etc... and boom....craft and school supplies have one place to live and I can close the cute doors and hide it all...Heaven...... It just happens that www.luckettsstore.blogspot.com is showing off organized spaces from Pinterest inspirations this week, check that out as well! Very cool ideas!
Out of sight, out of mind......I likey!!!! Enjoy! Love!
|My Inspiration, off Pinterest|
|What I started with, white and pink, it came from |
a little girl's playroom
|Cute, but not for me...|
|the entire thing was once this terrible color of gangrene???|
|I added the black shelves, and did slate gray chalkboard paint on |
the inside of the doors
|look at all the organization!! I feel so good! You want glue or scissors|
or a crayon??? I know where they are now!
|You are digging my vintage 1959 pencil sharpener, aren't ya|
It still works good too! actually I don't know how old it is,
but it is really old.....
|How bout my 2.97 knob??|
|or my 1.48 house number!!!|
|She's a keeper!!|
|I just close those doors and hide the mess, and believe me, in a bout a week....|
it will look like a bomb went off in there, but for now...
Enjoy the weekend!
