I got a little wall cupboard at the thrift store. It is actually pretty nice for being Walmart China. But it had some rough useage--broken door, latches broken. I've got it all apart and the door repaired. My husband had to help me get 3 of the screws out; they were so boogered they had turned into rivets. I'm painting it white, then will probably distress it. I was going to put 1900 magazine pages in the back, but I'm thinking I might put old linoleum. Totally different look. I ordered new screws; got the flat screw driver kind as they are more vintage looking than phillips.
I could put fabric in the back; or cork; or Kraft paper; or vintage wall paper. It needs new shelves; probably will buy glass. No idea what I will do with it, but it's a fun project. I like to repurpose things rather than just sending them to the landfill.
