Wednesday Goodies: Revamped cabinet!

We are in the process of organizing our messed up/crazy crammed laundry slash mud room. Actually, we are in the process of organizing our WHOLE home… but the laundry room is getting the most attention at the moment. A first step for our update: adding some storage. I found this metal cupboard at the Restore for $15. I’m not quite sure what this cabinet was in it’s past…. maybe some sort of appliance? No idea, but it’s mine. It needed a little lot of love. See below:

All it took was some primer and paint. I used a high gloss Ivory enamel spray paint. The can recommended 2 or 3 coats… but this little cabinet needed about 6 coats. There were quite a few spots of rust. It’s all good now! A new coat of paint and we added a wood top (the wood was also from the restore) and wood shelf. I’m very happy with how it turned out. For NOoooow, this new piece will hold my giant printer and some of our pans. FOr now.

I think it looks pretty spiffy. I can’t wait until our laundry room is more updated and we can really set up this cabinet to show it off! I think I need a fancy new washer and dryer for the room, but since that’s out of my budget: nope.

What do you think this cabinet was? A stove? Some sort of space age kitchen cabinet?

    Do you thrift in Portland proper? I'm out in McMinnville, and we have some great antique/thrift shops here, but I'd love to hear where you go (I won't steal all the cool stuff, promise!).

      A lot of Goodwill. I do love all the goodies on the way to McMinnville!

    Love this cabinet remodel…especially the wood addition! You are motivating me to do some thrifting!

    It looks so great! Not sure what it could have been, but I agree…probably some sort of old appliance. I love these sorts of pieces in homes, they provide so much more interest and character than something brand new :).

    Very cool. I miss thrifting so much, I'm a smidge jealous.
