Farmhouse Coffee Pantry & French Armoire From Curbside Junk
I found some outdated 80's style curbside cabinets and an ugly coffee table for free and transformed them into a"mostly" French inspired armoire and buffet area using homemade chalk paint and five lovely graphics from one of my favorite sites Karen - The Graphics Fairy. (Sorry for the picture quality as my camera is on the fritz so these were taken with my cell phone)

Very good job !!! I like seeing this kind of stuff come together!!
Love, love. love what you did to this cabinet. How did you copy design to the doors with a pen. amazing. love it. L.Caristo
Such a delightful, inspiring read. This is a wonderful transformation! I absolutely love your front frosted glass and stenciling. I have 2 identical towers with the only exceptions being that the top door is taller along with 3 panes of interior glass shelving. My husband’s politely asked (several times lol) if we could get rid of them “because they’re ugly (he’s not wrong there lol) and no one uses entertainment towers anymore”. However, such as yourself, I see the potential they have for other purposes. (I keep telling people they don’t understand the power of paint 😉😁.)
My query for you (and anyone else with ideas): Any suggestions on what I can do with all of that glass?!? Did you have other ideas on how to repurpose these towers? My initial thought for repurposing my towers were to use them for storage in my art room. However, with glass shelving that sounds disastrous lol. I’m certain the glass and actually even the towers themselves could be repurposed several different ways. I’m not opposed to entirely making them into something else. However, for some odd reason I’m having a major brain block.
I apologize for the long post. Funny how this same conversation face to face would’ve only taken a minute or 2 rather than looking like a dang high school essay to be graded 😂…yeah, please don’t grade this🤣
Again, thank you for such a wonderful post. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Kind regards 🙂
