Vintage Cabinet

Came Across this Vintage Gun Hutch with a Glass Door & bird hunting scene on it , But it did have a cute crystal like knob, bottom drawer and pretty cute handles.
At First I was going to bust out the glass and add some fabric or chicken wire, But then thought I would save the glass and turn it into a chalkboard door

I painted in a soft white, barely distressed the edges and painted the inside and outside glass door chalkboard.

I Then added a shelf inside and will also add some hooks for under the shelf for hanging coats-ribbon or maybe even a jump rope.

And here is the finished Cabinet/Hutch, too cute for kids to use to hang a jacket, store a backpack or as a crafting cabinet with a door to take notes on or draw & a little bottom drawer for extra storage.


  1. I swanee- I just love EVERYTHING you do!!! I would have passed this thing up- It's a GUN CABINET! But you see the potential in it. And tahnks to you and other folks who share your creativity...I am looking at things with different eyes too now. thx for that!

    This turned out so pretty! Did you do the chalk board paint directly on the glass tho- Just wondering. =)

  2. Wow!! You did a great job giving this cabinet a second chance at life! I love the chalkboard and I'm sure you will come up with great ideas for using the inside! Nicely done! :-)


  3. really like that.. it looks great

  4. Great and oh so functional! Love the pink toile chair in your last post too.

  5. What a beautiful transformation Karryann. You are always so creative. The chalkboard was a great idea! I can picture that in a kid's room or even a nursery. It's a fun piece!

  6. What a wonderful transformation!

    Thank you so much for following my blog! I hope you are having a beautiful week.
