Computer Cabinet Turned Wardrobe Cabinet

Hello friends!  Are you ready for the Holidays to be here?!  We have already started our Christmas Celebrations here.  But even with a busy Holiday season, I still try and get a few things done in the shop.

I picked up this cabinet not long ago.  It was a computer/TV cabinet.  I most everyone has laptops or ipads and no one has a TV that could fit in there.  So instead of doing the easy thing and just slapping on some paint, I decided it needed a new purpose.  It is now a shelf/wardrobe cabinet.

Before.

Painted a dark blue color and heavily distressed.  Changed out all the hardware with something a little more updated.

I have not jumped on that Milk paint/Chalk paint wagon yet.  But I thought I would give it a go.   This is a Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, the color is Artissmo.  I bought mine from Carver Junk Company in Carver.   I did paint a coat of regular latex black paint underneath.  I really like the added darkness underneath my paints.  Especially when I’m going for a more primitive look.

I love adding a little rustic wood in anything I can.  This would be great in a boys rustic themed room.

I added a removable shelf but also plenty of extra storage.
