Oak Family Room Cabinet

This item has been soldOak game cabinet

When I picked up this piece I had a couple of different ideas in mind. My first thought was that this piece would be great in a kitchen. I’m picturing one or two wire baskets in the open space, where you could put potatoes, onions, etc. And then underneath, in the cabinet, could go pantry items, large kitchen appliances that you don’t want on your countertop, or maybe cookbooks. The drawer would be great for stowing away placemats (do people still use those?), or utensils that aren’t used on a daily basis.

Then I thought this would also be great in an entry way. i kind of like that it’s on the taller side (perfect for a tall family like mine!). I’d put a basket (again) in the opening, which is where keys, mail, etc. can go. Then underneath can be all that other clutter that end up by the front door. Shoes, gloves, umbrellas, Legos (in my house)…..

But then, as I was surfing today, I came across a cabinet that was almost identical. This DIYer repurposed it as a game cabinet for the family room. Genius!

Now I’m even thinking about how great this would be in a baby’s room. Diapers would fit perfectly in that opening! And just think of all the baby stuff that could fit underneath!
