Unused Cabinets

I saw this idea on another blog awhile ago and had been dying to try it on some cabinets above my fridge.
The cabinets were full of junk and I could not reach them, so....... I thought i'd open them up and use them as open shelving instead.

It was pretty easy. I just removed the doors and lined the inside with pretty wrapping paper that I put up with double sided tape. I did some damage to the top of the cabinet and had to cover it up with 2 wood embelishments (just used some wood glue to stick them on):

  4. It looks great and so organized. I'm thinking of removing the doors off my cabinets over my refrigerator, too.

  7. That is such a great idea to display stuff instead, for those useless cabinets that is a pain to try to reach every time you need something. Love it!
