Old Gun Cabinet Turned Sports Cabinet

My mom wanted to get rid of the gun cabinet my brother made in his shop class in the late 80's. And I needed additional storage for my kids sports equipment.
Cost - $0
Difficulty - Easy
I started by removing the glass doors, bottom cabinet doors, and all the hinges. Then I sanded it down and started painting. I used the left over exterior house paint.
As you can see the base cabinet has space for boots and shoes. Originally I wanted to remove the gun slots and hooks but I decided not to and the baseball bats fit perfectly where the guns were supported before.
The cabinet filled up quickly. It is nice to have it in the garage so my son's dirty shoes don't come in the house. We are still going to add a little shelf above the hooks to put extra equipment on.

My husband secured it to the wall on the garage mudroom/deck that he built last year for me. :)
