My tiny house is just that; less than 500 square feet of living space; this doesn't leave a lot of room for furniture.
Everything has to be pared down, simplified and reduced. That doesn't mean the charm and character has to be too!
Here's my upcycled armoire to hold clothing; it's simple, yet sweet, and not a difficult project because you can find most of these kinds of things in the recycle center or at a garage sale; keep your eyes peeled for old doors, drawer fronts, small pieces of painted furniture, and turned legs.
Combine these to make a unique accent piece for your house, tiny or not.
This simple plywood cabinet started life as an ammunition storage unit; get ready for your transformation!
Four turned legs salvaged from a little plywood table - we seem to collect a lot of odd bits of furniture that look like shop projects from the high school - this one was obviously something like that originally, and used every technique known to man.
These are solid maple drawer fronts - no sign of the rest of them. What do I do with the two holes for the handles though?
That's easy - just drill holes to make a simple pattern. The doors will be stripped of the finish, and the rest of the top part made out of lumber.
Stripper was used to get rid of the paint from the legs of the armoire - these are the ones in the upper picture, cut off at a suitable length.
Won't be long now, and I'll have a fun and upcycled armoire to use as a cupboard.
