Take a look at my new bathroom cabinet. Isn’t she pretty? She wasn’t always that way though…
A couple of weeks ago I picked up this old medicine cabinet on my trip to Urban Ore. I was looking for some character to add to my bathroom and this $13 find fit the bill.
It was filthy. I’m talking wear rubber gloves and scrub the daylights out of it with Lysol filthy. So that’s what I did. Then I nailed it back together, filled holes, sanded and primed.
I painted it a creamy white, then rubbed a dark glaze into the details and immediately wiped it off. I also added some new hinges and a pretty glass knob. I think the finish turned out great.
Not only does it look great on the wall, but it’s added extra storage to my bathroom. I plan to add a shelf or two inside.
It can also serve as display shelf. I’ll be able to put pretty, breakable things up top and I won’t have to worry about my kids knocking them over. Haven’t accessorized the room yet, but you can get the idea….
