In the Designer's Words: "A little paint and paper make a huge difference for this boring unpainted wooden entryway cabinet. Learn how to decoupage on furniture and get organized in style!"
If you need more storage space but don't have extra room or money to do it, try repurposing an old piece of furniture from your basement or the thrift store. This Elegant Refurbished Entryway Cabinet is perfect for storing hats, gloves, and scarves during colder months. A few coats of paint and some wrapping paper disguise the fact that this beautiful piece of DIY home decor used to be a plain, old piece of furniture. Don't forget to update the inside of the cabinet to make it new from the inside out.

I haven't moved into a home with an entry way yet but this cabinet is very practical. You can have some drawers for your gloves and mittens . I just wish it was big enough to hold a rain coat and an umbrella. I love how simple his upcycled this craft is, just a few coats of paint and your favourite stencil or wallpaper and it's good as new.

Did you find a piece at the thrift store or yard sale that you just had to have but not sure where to go to make it what you want. Well here is a great way to refurbish it. Simple and quick and you will wonder what took you so long. I will deffinently make this entryway cabint if I find one it is so cute. You can even add some embleshments on it too.

This came at just the right time for me. I have an old ice box in the shed that I have had for years and couldn't think of what to do with it. Younger people have no idea what an ice box is. But when I was a kid we didn't have freezers. Anyway, I had gutted the snide and added a couple shelves but the outside was still an ugly old wood color. I just wall papered my master bath room and have paper left over. See where I am going with this? White paint, wallpaper cut outs made by nailing thin wood trim on the door in square of rectangular shapes and I have a beautiful cabinet to store extra towels, toilet paper and cleaning supplies.

Before my time, but I know what an ice box is. I love when items can be re-purposed. Especially, items with history and a totally different original purpose. Have you got around to completing it? I'd love to see pictures. Maybe some from before and after if you have them.
