TV Cabinet Turned Craft Hutch Storage Unit {Before & After Pictures}

I've been wanting to share this TV cabinet turned craft hutch project with you lovelies for quite some time now. This is actually an undertaking my husband & I worked on before I was even blogging so thankfully I was smart enough to take some "before" pics.

EEK! This old beat up thing was left behind by the previous owners & for quite some time it sat in our basement and served as my "Monica closet". Any old fans of the show "Friends" in the house?! Basically, any or every little thing I didn't know what to do with was shoved into this old TV unit.

Shortly after starting my own business on Etsy we realized we needed to remodel our home office to better accommodate all my shop's inventory but there was one little problem.......there was no storage or closet space in the room. That's when little Miss Ugly's life was spared! Why not convert the TV unit into a craft/office hutch to help store some of my supplies? And that's exactly what we my husband did!
Holy smokes! Who knew I was storing animals in this thing? So after clearing out the wild life my hubby sanded, painted, & added a peg board to the back of the unit & then we moved it up to the office.
 I found a picture holder at Pier 1 & thought it was the perfect way to display some of my card designs on the side of the cabinet!
Ready to see the inside?
Now I have a fun and organized space for all my packaging materials, hole punches, ribbon, card stock, postal scale, & other business supplies.  I can not express how much easier my life is with this storage unit! No more running room to room just to finish one order.

Fantastic! I LOVE it!! And I am so jealous because I don't have a good organization system for my craft stuff. It is in the basement and I keep trying to ignore it but it's not going away.

You did an amazing job with the remodel of this tv cabinet! Beautiful. I need to do something like this to corral all of my messes!

Sarah said...

Wow!! That looks absolutely gorgeous!! I bet that makes running your business so much easier! Unfortunately all of my craft supplies are strewn about our little studio in different locations. So I really have to keep a close eye on what I have and where it is, otherwise I'm likely to buy multiples of something! I'm hoping to convince my bf to carve out a little space for me soon though! :)

Max said...

Excellent job! Who would ever think that this stunning storage unit was once used as a television cabinet? Your husband is highly creative for transforming a television cabinet into a stunning storage unit like this. This will not only function as a place for keeping your things but also as a major accessory for your living room.

Now, that's a doozy! Who would have thought that on old TV cabinet can turn into a pretty crafting hutch. Talk about an appealing, functional, and space-saving storage/organizer.

I'd love to hear from you!
