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. Smiley

(Sorry, I couldn't figure out why it keeps posting the picture sideways)

It looks very elegant and the chalkboard paint makes it so much more useful.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I really like the contact paper you've used, it makes your cabinet look very elegant.  This is so pretty I could see using it anywhere in a house.  Great job!
