Armoire Renovation

4 Materials
8 Hours

I’m not at all crafty like so many others on this site, but I wanted to share my armoire-to-bar project. I know many of you have these in your basement now since some donation sites won’t even take them. Here's how I gave mine a whole new fresh look and function! Check it out.

This is what it looked like when we started.

Mine had a large hole cut out of the back for our TV. I used wooden slats to fill in the back.

I decided to use this pretty blue grey paint. Rethunk Junk paint requires no priming or sanding, I love it!

These are the slats I used for the back of the armoire.

For the inside shelf, I bought already primed wood at Home Depot that clicked together and had it cut to fit the space. I glued it in place with wood glue.

I then did a little sanding which added to the distressed look. It's the details that count!

Finished! It now serves as a perfect wine rack. It looks great, and I hope you like it too.

Suggested materials:

  • Rethunk Junk paint  (You probably need to order it.)
  • Wood cut to fit  (Home Depot)
  • Wood glue
