DIY Cane Cabinet

I am so excited to share this project, talk about transformation. For this makeover cabinet I wanted something new, something modern, something fresh with lots of textures and a sleek design. Used as a focal point in our formal living room to center our stunning mirror and for storing our board games.

Installing the woven cane fronts on the doors and adding metal legs changes everything about this cabinet. A background story about this now a cabinet was picked up from Kijiji advertised as a free dresser. I also bleached the whole cabinet and you can find the step by step of how to’s here

The cost for getting this cabinet modernized was $70, the caning is what cost me the most for $42 and I purchased the metal legs on kijiji for $20 and the wood for framing was $8.
