An antique armoire with all its vintage charm is no less than a treasure. However, like many people if you also think that today armoires are just waste pieces badly stuck in ancient times, you must rethink. You need to think of some creative uses you can put them to. You can do this without changing them much, and here are some cool ideas you can consider to upcycle an antique armoire:
A tired and old armoire lying waste in your store can be given an all new appearance and purpose bringing some small changes in it. One idea is to paint the armoire, give it a few shelves and brackets, add some rustic element to it, and it is ready to be used as a beautiful pantry. The handles will be the rustic hardware you will use, so that an old world charm of the armoire remains intact.
This idea is pretty impressive, as it helps transform an old and useless armoire into such a useful thing. Paint the armoire with some peppy color, you can add some metal or glass as well on the outer side to give it an ultra-modern appearance.
To use it as an open bar, you need to add a bottle storage rack to it, where you will be storing all wine and whiskey bottles. Above the rack, you must install a wineglass hanger. The rest of the space you can use for storing serving dishes, bar snacks and cocktail essentials.
Kid’s toy closet
You feel so annoyed when you see your child’s toys lying here and there in a room. Despite having toy storage, they never keep back toys in place. Changing an old armoire into a toy closet is a very good idea.
Make its outer appearance interesting so that your kids feel like turning back to it to keep back their toys again and again. On the inner side of the doors, hang blackboard charts, kids love scribbling on them.
Having a hobby like sewing, gardening, crafting, you need to have a proper space to keep all the craft items neat and tidy and at one place. If you are unable to organize all your hobby stuff, your home can be a real mess. An old armoire can serve as a perfect craft station, which will enable you to keep everything in place.
An armoire office
You cannot have a big office, as the small space does not allow you but you can always have a small concealable office. You can transform an old armoire into a smart workspace, which is a concealable office and does not require a big space.
Fashion accessory storage
