Utilize the inside of the door to create the most amount of space by using cork or blackboard sheets to leave notes and write messages. Magnetic sheets can be used as well to hang and organize jewelry. Line the space behind the shelving with colorful or patterned contact paper to add a fun pop of color.

Now to the exterior! Make the cabinet invisible by replacing the door with a picture frame! Easy storage and organization can be hidden in the walls and out of sight of guests. If you want to go in the opposite direction and make it a statement piece, place an intricate frame around the mirror! This unique addition will bump your cabinet up a notch.

If you have an old medicine cabinet that’s not being put to use, convert it into a night stand! Great for extra storage and getting new use out of old things. This one was glued to old chair legs and painted to give a seamless look.
