DIY Library Cabinet

A library cabinet can be the perfect storage solution for any family that has clutter that needs to be contained.

Jen from cityfarmhouse has created the perfect cabinet at a fraction of the cost if she had purchased it from a trendy home store.

DIY Library Cabinet

She began by purchasing 2 small wood cabinets which she then mounted one on top the other to create one tall unit.

She followed the manufacturer’s directions for putting the cabinets together, secured one on top of the other and then painted them a rich charcoal.

Finally, Jen added new hardware to both the top and the bottom cabinets and painted the legs a brass color.

The legs of the unit are adjustable so they can be changed for stability on floors that are not perfectly even.

One of the most important tips Jen has for us, and she repeats this several times in her tutorial, is to make sure you fasten the unit to the wall!
