There’s a hot decor trend emerging in home decor that’s rocking an antique piece of furniture to make a statement and add a sophisticated touch. And it is not only suitable for vintage or sophisticated interiors, in modern rooms vintage furniture looks even more striking and cool. We’ve already shared some ideas for incorporating vintage chests and cabinets, and today I want to show you how to rock another popular thing: an apothecary cabinet. If you have one, lucky you, don’t throw it away, let’s see how you can use it to add an edgy touch to your interior.
Entrance console table
Most entrances have space for a console table – large or small. Take your apothecary cabinet and chop it as needed – add some texture to sand it or paint it whatever color you want. A pharmacy cabinet is a great addition to an entryway as it offers plenty of storage space both inside and above. If you don’t have an apothecary cabinet, you can take IKEA Rast and just turn it into one – it’ll be a cute and simple console.
Living room console table
Most living rooms have space, and some even require a console table as a room divider, and an apothecary cabinet is an ideal item as such. Figure out what look you want: an industrial vintage, rustic vintage, or shabby chic, and chop your pharmacy cabinet accordingly. If you want a shabby chic pharmacy cabinet, rock pastels and sand it down a bit. Add metal frames and matching handles for an industrial touch. You can choose different colors to achieve a rustic look.
Kitchen islands and counters
Pharmacy cabinets can become beautiful kitchen islands and just storage items – they look very textured and eye-catching. You can paint or stain it as you like and such a closet will guarantee you plenty of storage space. You can also hack your piece and build some open shelves in it – for linens, plates and dishes and other things. Get inspired and rock this cool piece in your home!
