Gun Cabinet Repurpose

Suppose your have a gun cabinet hanging around unused.
What do you do with it?
In the case of this one, it was in our bedroom.
You see
we did the responsible thing and bought a gun safe
a few years ago
since JWS had built this in high school
a few years ago
it did not seem right to get rid of it
since we did not have the foresight to
actually put a linen closet in when we added on to the house...
Gun cabinet turned linen closet. 

I had purchased this wallpaper
also a few years ago
at a yard sale
well because I am a bit of a hoarder.

splurged on some
Annie Sloan chalk paint...
instead of the normal mixing my own.

This was the closest to a BEFORE picture.
Note that at this point we also did not have closet doors...
but that's another blog post.
(13 years we have not had closet doors! )

JWS even installed shelves! 
I think he is a toilet paper hoarder!  
Closet doors
A linen closet
All in one week!
Organization, PLUS!
Today's project:
My closet.
The number of items leaving the house is staggering!

Good morning!
Love the re-purpose! It's perfect for what you turned it in to.
Goodness I think most of us have 'unfinished' projects in our homes. I do and I don't like to think of them lol
Blessings and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR.
