I upcycled this cube shelving unit some time ago. It went from basic cube to a console table with legs and drawers. It worked well but since I'm in the middle of making over all the furniture in my home office, I decided to change this piece up a bit.
Here's the before & after of the last makeover:
and here's how it looks now:
I love the pieces I've been seeing lately that have mixed wood tones for drawers and doors. I had some bead board left over from my kitchen remodel, so I decided to add doors.
If you want to see how I made over this table, click HERE.
I added chunky trim around the table top as well and I used the leftovers of this trim on the back of the bead board doors to have a good base for the hinges to screw into.
Please note the highly technical way I paint things - paper plate, peanut butter jar to mix my paint colour and paper towels to apply it. I used a roller as well... I stained two of the "doors" and sanded the paint off of the already painted piece of bead board to get my coat of many colours look.
Anyhoo. I love the way it turned out, even it the doors are a bit wonky. I tried installing the hinges every which way on this thing before I found a way that actually worked. At least I can hide more stuff in this thing and you can't see the mess!

I'm going to glue them on with a hot glue gun when I decide what I want. :)
Hope I inspired you with this job. Happy upcycling!
