Recently Amanda emailed me commenting on the wardrobe/craft closet I redid for the playroom/office. She told me about an old Ikea shelving unit she had and wanted to know of any ideas as to what to do with it. Well of course I had a few and I kindly asked if I could share with you all.
Here's what she has...and I'm sure we all have something similar lying around that is screaming for new life to be brought back into it!
So here are a few ideas I came up with that don't require any painting...although that is always an option. I hope this helps Amanda!
Covering it in some sort of paper material, like a map!
Replace the existing door with an old shutter or reclaimed wood!
Contact paper! (it's already sticky on one side too!)
And on the same note, why not wallpaper?
If you wanted to break out the tools you could buy some bead-boarding and attach it to the outside of the shelving.
Or if you're lazy or lack the skills to use tools like myself...they make bead board wallpaper!
You could also remove the door all together and get some cool storage bins for the shelving.
I hope this helps Amanda! I had fun working on it for you! Anyone else have a great solution?
