Ikea Shoe Cabinet Hack Project

A Shoe Cabinet Transformation

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member eclectic-touch from the Su Casa group:

I am one of those who prefer to take off their shoes in the entryway, so that it can be a no-shoe zone in the bedroom. But the problem I faced was the lack of shoe cabinet designs in the USA — well, at least in my price range, that is. So, I had to take things into my own hands and make something out of one of the boring, basic, plain cabinets that I could get my hands on: IKEA, it was.

This has been my proudest DIY project to-date. I tackled it about a year ago and still love it. Basically, I bought two cheap shoe cabinets that have very narrow depths which meant they would not eat any footage of my entryway. I then installed 3-D wall covers that come in paintable white onto the cabinet doors. Then I painted them with the same green paint as my walls. I spray painted the visible wood particle parts of the cabinets with a green hue slightly lighter than the wall paint, so the cabinets became two-toned, even though it may not be that visible in the picture. By choosing the wall paint as the primary color, they blend into the wall, like an extension of it. I then put in some cute daisy shaped aluminum knobs, and voilà.

If you have any questions, please post a comment on this post. By the way, I am very new to blogging and need some blog-lovin'. If you can visit my decor/design/food/life blog, and if you like it, follow me. I will really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
