DIY Red Wardrobe Makeover copy

In preparation for launching my online boutique and Etsy shop, I’ve been working on an office/studio space in my home. I knew I needed some good storage space, but I wasn’t finding exactly what I wanted. I took a trip down to The Habitat ReStore and found this amazing wardrobe/cabinet for $20! With a little TLC, I knew this would make the perfect piece.

The only thing new I purchased for this DIY project was the chrome knobs that I found on clearance at Target!

I removed the stapled in material and replaced it with a mirror that I cut down from a full length mirror I already had. After hours of stripping, sanding, and washing down with TSP, not all of the red paint came off. I decided to leave it and stain over it. I actually loved how the hints of red paint popped through the Red Mahogany stain. Sometimes projects don’t turn out exactly how you image, they turn out better!
