DIY Project – Bathroom cabinet makeover

| 5 Comments

Due to our recent house move, we’ve been in need of a little more storage and when my husband picked up an old, scuffed, dark wood bathroom cabinet I couldn’t really see the potential in it. The fact that it was only 50p at a carboot sale meant that earned its place in our new home, but not before a little bit of TLC made it look a lot cuter!

Here’s how we made a manky cabinet into a vintage masterpiece! First we removed the mirror sections from the doors (just the same as taking the glass out of a photo frame) and lightly sanded down the whole cupboard. We used a thin coat of quick-drying undercoat for wood and allowed this to dry before moving on to painting a blue-grey Crown wood topcoat all over the cupboard.

The final step was to pop the mirrors back into the doors and re-attaching the cupboard knobs. I put my husband to work, drilling the fixings to the wall and bish-bash-bosh up it went! And I’ve now filled it with all the girly essentials I need in my bathroom and hubby’s razor is still being stored on the windowsill, oops! 😉
