Re-purposed Bookshelf

by Susan
4 Materials
I bought a bookcase on wheels from a re-store. It was the perfect size for the space between my kitchen windows.
I needed to paint it to match my kitchen cabinets.
I needed to add some wood pieces to the top and bottom to close the gap for the doors.
I bought wood panels from Home Depot and added moulding to somewhat match my cabinets.
I added the hardware and the doors.
Looking good but still needed a wider top to support the coffee maker.
Stained and polyurethaned another board from Home Depot.
I added the details on the from to complete the look.
Here it is finished and in it's place under another re-store shelf project.
Suggested materials:
  • Used bookcase
  • Moulding
  • 2 door panels

    There is no information with your project. I love the dark color on the outside of the bookcase. What brand and color is it?

    Thank you Bernice and yes I absolutely love Hometalk! Now that I have made my cabinet and used it for a few weeks I love it and its so handy . It would work great as a buffet cart for your company and/or even a bar cart...endless possibilites!
