I had a very old, beat up and BORING white cabinet that has been in our garage for over a year now. I believe I originally bought it at Target for like $30 years ago. (Sorry, I should have taken 'before' photos.) I needed some storage for my new craft room (yay!) and I came across this guy.
I added some chalkboard paint to the sides- which has come in very handy for taking measurements and quick notes. I do need a chalk holder though. I was thinking of taking one of the little tile holders from an old Scrabble game, painting it and gluing it to the top of the cabinet.
I used my favorite contact paper that I had sitting on my shelf to redo the doors. It has stuck surprisingly well.
All in all- it took me an afternoon to repaint the entire thing white (it was kind of a grungy off-white to begin with), paint the chalkboard paint on and slap on the contact paper. 4 hours max.
(Sorry, I couldn't figure out why it keeps posting the picture sideways)
