Linen Closet from a China Cabinet

I needed some additional space on my third floor (master bedroom and bathroom area) to hold odds and ends like linens, toilet paper, towels, soap, etc.  Our bathroom has a small sink with some storage underneath and the bedroom has a typical bi-fold accordion door closet with limited space.  No hall closets anywhere in the house.  So, I thought it might be fun to find an old china cabinet on CraigsList and give it a nice update.  I wanted cabinet and shelf space but wanted it to look nice since it would be in the hallway.  Here are some before, during, and after photos. (I completed this about a year ago but didn’t get around to posting it until today.

Doors off and danced. I like it better already…

I love Primer

Shelving paper as a backslash

I found these green boxes in the $1 section at Target!

I bought three boxes the year before that were a slightly different shade but they work well together against the green wall.

Added some gold accents to match a mirror on the other side of the hallway.
