But, I haven’t had much luck and this little guy has been sitting awkwardly in the corner since we moved in.
|Sorry about the terrible iPhone pic…but you at least get the point.|
I wanted a piece that would have lots of storage, but not be too large as to overwhelm the bathroom. I also wanted something cheap that I could re-do and paint a fun color.
That’s when this beauty came into my life while shopping at the Habitat for Humanity Restore…
Okay, maybe “beauty” isn’t the correct word. But, she sure was beautiful in my eyes.
I got her home and tried her on for size in the bathroom.
She fit like a glove.
Next, I had to figure out how I was going to spruce her up.
After a bit of googling and a nice chat with the guy at Home Depot, I was armed with the supplies to tackle my new bathroom cabinet.
Mouse Detail Sander
120 & 220 grit sandpaper
Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer
2 cans of Valspar Spray Paint ($7)
TOTAL COST: $7 (Already owned everything, besides the spray paint)
I did a light coat of the Zinsser, using the foam roller on the big areas and the paint brush around tight spots.
After about 30 minutes, I did one more coat of the primer.
Now the hardest step….the waiting period!
