Medicine Cabinet Makeover
I recently gave our guest bathroom a mini makeover, but prior to this, I had made a few other updates. This bathroom was not as bad as our master bathroom since it had chrome light fixtures and cabinet hardware, but it could still use a refresh.
I liked how the painted cabinets turned out in our master bathroom, so I decided to use the same color on the cabinets in the guest bathroom too.
I added the hand towel ring, switched out the painted metal towel bar for a chrome one, and added accessories, like the clock and toothbrush holder.
I also gave the medicine cabinet a face-lift as well! The guest bathroom had a white medicine cabinet with an etched floral design on the mirror similar to the one in the picture below. When I updated the bathroom, I wanted to keep the functionality of the cabinet, but update it to match the rest of the bathroom.
I painted the inside and outside of the cabinet Bear Rug by Behr in a Semi-gloss finish to match the vanity cabinets.
I wanted to take out the mirrors and replace them, but it did not look like I could do it easily, so I got the idea to cover them instead.
I had leftover cork contact paper that I had used to line the cabinets in my kitchen. I measured the size of the mirrors on the cabinet doors and cut out two pieces of cork to fit. Then, I just removed the backing and stuck the cork to the mirrors.
I love how it turned out! It gave the cabinet a modern look that was appropriate for a boy's bathroom and fit in with the style of the bathroom.
What do you think? Have you every used contact paper in an unconventional way?
