I have an armoire sitting in my living room.
I received it (along with a dozen other furniture pieces)
as payment in exchange for a home staging I completed.
It holds nothing. Yet.
I gathered some ideas for it and thought you might like to see them, too.
I've chosen one of these ideas below.
Can you guess which one?
Without the doors (if you have some pretty organizing items like
jars, baskets, and hooks) an armoire is whimsical and functional in a bathroom.
Lindy transformed this beautiful French piece so she could hide away the sewing mess
because this is in her guest room (guest room pictures in the link under the picture, too!)
PRETTY PRIMPING PLACE
Pam designed and created this area for her daughter
so she had an area to go glam and get girly.
CRAFT and PROJECT AREA
Susan found this armoire for $25.
She says, "Now when I work on a project, I won't have to go on a scavenger hunt
to find my supplies all over the house."
OUTDOOR POTTING and GARDENING SHED
A free score from Craigslist and $11 in brackets and paint gave Karin this adorable
place to play in the dirt.
BEVERAGE or BAR BUREAU
What a creative way to be hospitable!
This spot makes it easy to welcome your guest and family
Tea, water, soda or other drinks welcome here, too!
BABY'S CHANGING TABLE
Clever. Concealed. Contained.
Couldn't every home could use an extra linen closet?
PANTRY or BAKING ZONE
If you've got the space for this in your kitchen, try it!!
CHINA COLLECTION CABINET
Have you a collection of a set of serveware that you'd like to display?
Here's a way!

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES POD
Jack (he's 5 years old) and Gracie (she's 1.5 years old) have their own
special spot for their play stuff. How FUN!
Handy yet hidden, this petite version is just the right size.
Do you have an unused or outdated armoire sitting somewhere gathering dust,
or worse, clutter?
Clean that thing out. Paint it. Make it useful again.
Or sell it to me.
I've found lots of ideas and places to use one!
What could you use an armoire for?
