I searched high and low for skinny enough storage, but tall enough to fit our space and for what I needed. I luckily came across on a local yard sale site someone selling these 2 plastic storage cabinets for $30 for the pair. They were the perfect size and price- since similar ones at Target or Ikea were a BOATLOAD more- and boring colors. I knew I wanted these cabinets to brighten up our fairly neutral dining room, so I decided to paint them teal (similar to our coffee cart that I DIY'ed from a tv cart.)
Gotta love how spray paint can update boring storage cabinets.
|I just love this color!|
|Cabinet closed- before|
|Cabinet open- before|
|Let the painting begin! Ran out of paint, so had to get more to have a even coating.|
Anyways, don't settle for a one-function room- go for multi-functional! I plan on adding either corkboard, magnetic plates or chalkboard on the inside of the doors- just haven't gotten to it yet.
As a side note- don't wear short-sleeves when spray painting on a windy day. lol
Hope this inspires you to take otherwise boring garage storage and turn it into functional storage inside your home!
Have a great day!
