Beach-Inspired Bathroom Cabinet

Don’t you love a good before and after?? I know I do! Today I’m sharing this little cabinet that I recently found at the thrift store for $8:

The painting on this was beautifully done, but definitely in need of an update. One of the doors was warped also, but I knew exactly how to remedy that!

I love when things work out! I didn’t really do much except paint, add a graphic, and swap out the doors, but the change is pretty cool, don’t you think?

A big shout out to my fence picket pile:

I love you guys.

You make so many thing better.

I sanded where the decorative painting was previously to get a smooth finish. Then I just painted using white latex paint since I was painting over paint.

I used the old doors as a guide to build my new doors.

I white washed them by using the super simple process shown here. It goes something like this:

Then I added the “Beach” graphic to the top for a little fun touch. See more about transferring graphics here.

I have this in our bathroom, but you could hang this anywhere to hide a few things. It would be perfect in a laundry room!
