TV Cabinet to China Cabinet

Pat Williams
by Pat Williams
I love to save old furniture! So when my brother was getting rid of his old TV cabinet, I knew that I could make it into something useful. I love this new china cabinet in my dining room!
The doors of the cabinet slide back inside.
I needed to build a free standing shelving unit.
Since the shelves are quite wide, I used my new Kreg tool to attach two boards.
Some chalk paint and stencils finish the look.
The drawer is lined with fabric.

    would not have believed it if I hadn't seen the before/after. Just beautiful. Especially with the wording What stencil brand is that?

    Where did you buy your stencils ...I've been looking for some to adhere to a floor rug I'm painting for the patio

    I really love this idea, and I did something very similar in my kitchen to hide my microwave and toaster oven and also to store extra bakeware and things that wouldn’t fit anywhere else. I got the cabinet for $100, painted it with chalk paint and bought the little details from amazon and painted those and glued them on. It has a ton of storage....glad to see others doing a similar thing...
