Chicken wire isn’t just for chickens, but of course you are so smart…you already knew that! Today I’m sharing a quick little redo on a cabinet I found at the thrift store for five dollars.
I started with this $5 thrift store beauty:
I snatched this right up and was so excited to show my mom (who was with me at the time), but she raised her nostril so high (not a good sign, I can assure you), that I almost put it back. Almost. But I had faith.
(By the way, here’s a fun experiment to try: Raise a nostril like you really don’t like something you see. Now try to raise the opposite nostril the same way. It’s near impossible, right? That makes me laugh just trying to do it!)
Here is the inside before:
I’m not sure what this little cabinet was intended to display. The shelves were only about two inches deep!
I whacked those babies out and replaced them with two simpler shelves that fit better…
I kept the same knob. It works with this cabinet.
I used frog tape to tape off my diamond pattern and painted right over the hardware.
I love the harlequin pattern. It adds a touch of whimsy.
As does the chicken wire.
This could be perfect in a kitchen to hold spices; in a bathroom to hold nail polish, perfumes, or other toiletries; or even in an office to hold extra supplies.
You can also use the wire front as a message board using clothespins to hold things in place!
I’m also excited to share that I am back in the show circuit. After an eight year hiatus, I decided on a whim to apply for the big Christmas Market in our area and was accepted! Now I need to get some inventory going. This cabinet will be a fun addition! What do you think?
If you like what you see, there are several ways to follow along!
I love to share at some of these great parties:
