Gun Cabinet

                                                                Before-sort of:

You've seen these, right? Non-descript gun cabinets that some poor woman has been trying to talk her husband into getting rid of for years. This is a picture of a similar one so you get the idea.


Need storage in a small space? Try refinishing refurbishing repurposing (what is the current buzz word??) a gun cabinet. They tend to be narrow and not as deep as other pieces. Take out the gun racks and add shelves and decorative trim. We used Annie Sloan chalk paint in grey and Briwax in clear and then light brown. By the way, it really helps to use a good wax brush to apply it. In this case, it is true what they say about using the right tools for the job. Hobby Lobby had cute clear glass knobs that look WAY better than the original black ones.

We have it decked out for Halloween with my BOO banner, mini flags, and apothecary jar full of candy, but eventually this will live in the bathroom.
