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.
