Lucia found this old wooden cabinet with sliding glass doors, and immediately saw an alternate use for it. Instead of a wall-mounted unit, she transformed it into freestanding furniture that better suits her needs, all for a minimal cost...

The transformation wasn't technically difficult, just time consuming. After sanding off all the varnish, Lucia spray painted the inside white. The exterior got several coats of water-based wood stain. She then added some old tapered legs removed from a wardrobe that she had lying around. Lastly, instead of totally replacing the doors, she came up with an interesting solution: she spray painted the inside of the glass white as well!

See more photos of the process, over at This Must Be Replaced.

Thanks Lucia!
