If you have an old glass door laying around, why not put it to use in a corner to create a corner cabinet. Cut 2X4s on an angle, toenail in as a frame for the door, attach hinges for door and add shelves to the wall. I painted the doors with craclkle paint and different colors of paint to give it an older look.  Easy. What a great way to use an unused corner and add storage.

Sure could have used extra space there somewhere too. Great idea and a great look with all the beautiful things inside. Posted: 6:49 pm on January 31st
