make me pretty – basement cabinet dressed up for our living roomJanuary 2, 2014
One of our good friends was getting ready to sell her house and had some furniture to get rid of. This adorable cabinet had been living in her basement storing paint and other home repair supplies. I decided to fix her up and put her in our living room. I made some shelves for the bottom to store toys and the top would be perfect for the pretty, breakable things I am too afraid to leave out around the kids.
I scraped the old paint off the glass doors and gave her a new paint job, inside and out. Then I cut some cardboard panels to fit between the top shelves on the back and covered them with fabric. This way when I get bored, which won’t take more than a couple years, I can pop them out and change the fabric. Or I could cover them with wall paper.
