‘Tis the season for baking! With the holidays in full swing, we look forward to cookies, cakes, and all things in between. Do you have a dedicated space for your baking essentials? Maybe you need a baking cabinet like the one I’m creating to inspire you today.
If you remember a few weeks ago, I took a different cabinet and created a DIY coffee bar. Funny thing is, I purchased this cabinet above at the same time. However, I think it suits a totally different use (though it can be used for coffee too)
I’ve never denied my passion for casters. So, when I found two pieces that both have mobility, I am elated. woot! Do you blame me? Extra storage is one thing, but having them be portable is definitely a bonus. Plus, there’s a hidden jewel inside.
Let’s get this baking cabinet makeover party started! First, I tackle the wear and tear. There are gouges and wear that I fill with wood filler and sand it down. Next, it’s time to paint.
The outside is getting a custom-mixed gray, while the inside is getting a brighter touch to make it feel clean and refreshed.
Last, but not least I add the finishing touches to my baking cabinet. After I compete the painting, it’s time to add hardware and any topcoat. I chose to change out the hardware with bin pulls, and the casters with brand new ball casters. They’re looking pretty rough, aren’t they?
Then, I line the drawers with paper, and wax the routed details and we’re good to go. In addition, notice I’m using a Square Brush that has past it’s paint prime. These brushes are handy for so many things.
Finally, here is my brand new baking cabinet ready to be put into action. woot!
I’m excited with how the finish came out and even more so that it is fully functional. Inside is the little secret gem that makes this cabinet even more versatile.
How cool is that? This built-in cutting board took me by surprise. It’s untouched and tucks away into the back end of the drawer.
Then, the inside is full of storage potential as well. All I did was add a few hooks to make it even more functional. Likewise, keeping things easy to find and easy to access are key to me.
Likewise, if you’d like to own this baking cabinet, you can add it to your kitchen arsenal. My shop offers furniture, vintage and antique finds, as well as handmade items.
In addition, do pin and share this baking cabinet makeover to encourage others to make functional space in their home. It’s fun, easy, and definitely affordable.
