This hub is about the ways you can rework old armoires or television cabinets as they're often called. We have four of these tall old cabinets in our house and one in the barn. We still have old televisions so we use ours. Many of the new flat screen television don’t fit into them. What can you do with the old ones? Here are a few suggestions. My daughter was getting rid of hers and I took it and use it now to put all extra computer stuff in. It's full and I have a hub on how we recycled it. I use one for bedding. I believe you should always try reusing what you have. Following are my suggestions and ideas I have found. Recycle, recycle and recycle anytime you can. Turn an one into a craft area or a gift wrapping/stationary station. I'm always having trouble finding a place for all the wrapping paper and ribbons. It's a good place to keep scissors, cards, bags, and ribbons where you can find them. It's easy for our Christmas wrappings to get away from us.
If you have a special place you won't have trouble finding it when Christmas comes around. Armories will also work great for a garden area. Keep all the planting items you need in it. You can also use it to store vases. I store my vases up high because this is the only place I have. When I want one I have to depend on someone else to get it down. Most of the time my flowers end up in whatever glass is handy to put them in. I would love to have a garden area like one in the photo. We don't have the room in this small house. If you have the room it's a great way to recycle an old armoire. I like the idea of turning them into bars. Keep all the glasses and liquor in it. Even though I don't drink I think it can make a great bar. If the inside back of the looks bad because some come with a hole in the back for holding a TV.
You can cover the back. Buy poster board or cardboard, and cut to the size you need to cover the back. Then glue or tape fabric, pretty wrapping paper or wallpaper to the poster board. After it's covered push it into the back of the cabinet. If you make the cardboard tight enough you won't have to glue it in and can change the look whenever you want. You could use small nails and just tack it in. I would want to be able to take the poster board out so I could change the fabric. If you do decide to change to a different fabric then just add it right over the old fabric or wallpaper. Use them for changing table for baby. It would be so handy. Keep all the baby clutter that you need for baby in it. I wish I had one when we had babies.
All the diapers in those days were cloth diapers and rubber pants it wasn't always easy to find a place to keep them. They took up more space than the diapers do now. I would hook a diaper stacker to the door. Down below in the doors good places for little t-shirts, blanks, and gowns. Use for a desk or computer area to hold all the equipment. It's also nice because it can close so no one can see the clutter in the room. Good place for those bills, papers, medical papers, pens, pencils, and computer stuff. We all have all those little items take up space and no place to go with them makes a good filing cabinet. I get so overrun with paper stuff. It drives me crazy. I'm always saving things that give me ideas for Hubpages. You can keep the linen in an old one or a place to put away winter throws when not in use, in the summer. Great place for all the bedding we all have, extra pillows, throw pillows that you don't have out all the time.
