Turn a Shelving Unit Into a Cupboard!

We had two shelving units in our living room to store books and DVDs. I painted them to fit in with the room as they were previously an orange tone of wood. However, having the DVDs on display didn’t fit in with the decor, constantly looked untidy and small children always pull them off the shelves. So I decided to construct cupboard doors to turn the shelf into a cupboard to hide them away.

This is the before, the shelf is made from pine and very inexpensive. I had previously painted it with an ivory eggshell paint to blend in with the room.

My husband got to work constructing the door for me from reclaimed pallet wood we had stored in the garage. He measured the height of the shelf and took planks off the pallet and cut them to length.
