After seeing so many awesomely altered cabinets and hutches over the years, I’m convinced that anyone, regardless of his or her craft skills or experience, can transform a piece of furniture to suit their tastes— with a little creativity, of course. I know I suffer from procrastination when it comes to larger pieces of furniture, but these projects demonstrate what a huge difference it can make when you finally tackle that big old cabinet in the dining room or den. Whether you enjoy bright, bold statement pieces or more subdued, neutral styles, there should be plenty of inspiration in this roundup to get you excited about your next big furniture project. Enjoy! —Kate
