Wood Organic Coffee storage cabinet with hidden bulletin board! For stylish storage that hides all the clutter!
I LOVE having THESE vintage crates as open storage shelves on the kitchen wall! They are cool to look at, and help organize phone station supplies, office paperwork, and you got it… some tools as well.
However I was thinking more along the lines of hidden storage for tools and office supplies this round.
And that’s when my thoughts drifted back to this Organic coffee burlap sack bulletin board sign.
Love the rustic coffee bean bag aesthetic so much! And the coffee theme is perfect for a kitchen.
So why not try and make the sign into a wood organic coffee storage cabinet that could hide all the woodworking tools?! And maybe even a hidden bulletin board to hide paperwork clutter?!
Grabbing a few more planks of reclaimed wood, the challenge was on!
This cabinet extension idea shares how to build a storage cabinet that works with any cabinet door!

Wood Organic Coffee storage cabinet
Supplies I used:
bulletin board (my cut piece measured 22″ x 29″)
cordless drill and screws

Make or choose a cabinet door
1. Choose cabinet door of choice.
The first thing you’ll need is either a door to work with, or make your own door frame built like a picture frame like I did HERE.
I used a Kreg Jig to
My boards ended up measuring:
- top and bottom – 4″ x 18″
- sides – 4″ x 25″
- finished door frame: 22″ x 29″
Creating the cabinet frame
1. Create a boxed frame to match the size of your given door frame.
Using the same sized reclaimed wood, it was measured then cut to the exact finished size of the door frame.
2. Cut some additional boards for shelves and cabinet supports.
2 additional boards were cut to the same length as the top and bottom to create shelves.
Then 2 more boards cut at the same length, to be used at the top and bottom of the cabinet as support boards, making it easy to attach the cabinet to the wall.
All board sizes
- top and bottom – 4″ x 18″
- sides – 4″ x 25″
- shelves – 4″ x 18″
- inside support boards – 4″ x 18″
- finished cabinet size: 22″ x 29″
3. Lightly sand the boards.
Assembling the cabinet
4. Pre-drill holes on the two long side boards.
Pre-drilling holes helped prevent the old reclaimed wood from splitting.
5. Attach the sides to the top and bottom with screws.
Pretty nifty, right?!
A large rusty junk door handle was dry-fit at this time, but not attached yet.
Adding a bulletin board to the door
If you are using a ready-made cabinet door, you can skip #7!
However if you are building a custom door like I did or would like to turn your cabinet door into a bulletin board, here’s what I did:
7. Cut a bulletin board to just under the same size as the cabinet door frame.
I collect bulletin boards from thrift stores, so I had this large board on hand, and cut it down to my desired size using a heavy exacto knife.
Adding a burlap sign
8. Staple stenciled burlap onto the front of the bulletin board.
The burlap sandbag was then stapled onto the bulletin board along all four edges with a staple gun.
9. Attach the bulletin board to the cabinet door frame from the back.
Flip the cabinet door frame good-side-down, then the bulletin board good-side-down on top.
Attach the frame and bulletin board together with screws inserted along the edges.
Installing door hinges
10. Add two door hinges to attach the cabinet door to the frame.
I screwed on two metal door hinges I had on hand. They didn’t even match!
Attaching the hinges proved to be a little fiddly! But here’s what I did:
I placed the door on top of the cabinet, then slipped the hinges into position. The hinges were screwed to the cabinet first. Then the hinges were attached to the back of the door last.
You may need to fiddle and adjust hinge placement until you can close the cabinet door perfectly.
Adding a door pull
11. Attach door pull.
This rusty old door pull proved to be the perfect size and esthetic! What a match!
And all that’s left to do is hang it up and put it to work!

This rustic storage cabinet oozes with rustic coffee shop charm, thanks to the Organic Coffee bean sack design made with THIS STENCIL.

Because once you open up that storage cabinet door?
Inside the cabinet are shelves and hanging areas as well as a hidden bulletin board for loads of hidden paperwork storage potential! Perfect hiding place for notes, receipts, business cards and any paperwork you don’t wish to see!
- Shallow shelves offer easy access
- Full bulletin board covered door for tons of messy paperwork storage
- Additional boards with screws added for hanging storage potential
Attaching the cabinet
The cabinet is attached to the wall with screws through the support boards.
Two more wood boards were also attached to the inside of the storage cabinet to become the perfect backer for added hanging storage! Perfect for string, hammer, masking tape, scissors, etc!
Everything is hung from screws or nails. No fancy hooks are needed this round since the storage is hidden.
This Wood Organic Coffee storage cabinet is a beautiful piece.
It’s a great piece of coffee art!
But open up that cabinet door…
And it turns into one epic storage cabinet to hide your gear!
