New Life to an Old Hamper

I don't know why I put this project off so long. I wanted to make this old tired hamper into a cabinet for the longest time. Having a drawer and being all wood I knew it would be more functional cabinet. 

Here's the before/after picture.

I removed the fold down door, began removing all the louvers (saved them for other uses) . Filled all the opening for a smoother look, removed all the hardware, filled in the middle where the knob used to be. I had to cut and fit two shelves for the inside of the cabinet. It was all started to come together now. Fitted the hinges to make the door functional. I used my chalk paint powder with Drop Cloth paint color (it's not white or cream, kinda the best of both worlds).
I chose to lightly distress back to reveal some age. I truly love how this turned out.
