Cupboard Transformation into Craft & Cocktail Cupboard
A few eagle eyed readers, have spotted my craft cupboard lurking in the background of a few blog posts, such as my Copper Tin Can Caddy. This classy craft cupboard transformation was completed a few years ago, and as requested I will show you how I did it.
I don’t have the luxury of a dedicated craft room. Most of my crafting is done in the dining room, or in the garden, when the weathers good. Therefore I wanted a craft cupboard that wouldn’t look out of place in a dining room. It also doubles up as a cocktail cabinet. Personally I think cocktails and crafts are a great combination, some of my best crafting is done after a couple of cocktails! Or perhaps they just look better after a couple of cocktails!
I picked up the glass cupboard really cheaply from my local auction house. Well actually my husband and son picked it up for me as I was in London that day. I remember their texts that day, they were not impressed and were cursing me for buying such a big ugly piece of furniture. They didn’t have my vision, and I must admit the glass cupboard was pretty ugly. Now after my cupboard transformation, everyone loves it. I must admit it is probably my favourite piece of furniture in the house. I just love the colour and the curves.
What I used for the cupboard transformation
This was a large cupboard, luckily it split into two easily, which made the cupboard transformation a lot easier.
How I did the cupboard transformation
I love this craft/cocktail cupboard. I love the curved glass doors which show off the bright colour inside. I love the fact that my colourful craft supplies are visible through the glass. I can show off my washi tapes on their holder along with my sloe gin collection. I think is great that my craft supplies have pride of place in such a classy looking cabinet rather than confined to some more practical but ugly craft storage cupboard.
