Painted bathroom cabinet makeover

Before I share my painted bathroom cabinet makeover with you,

I want to thank everyone for their prayers and well-wishes! It was a bit of a rough week and weekend with Little and her pericarditis. She is doing much better!

I wanted to share with you this makeover using Decoart’s 2016 Chalky Finish paints (Sponsored).

Challenged with a yard sale makeover this month, I wanted to find a skinny cabinet to use in the downstairs bathroom. We are about 80% finished and needed a little bit of extra storage for the essentials (i.e. TP).

I lucked out and came across one for $30!

Yard sale cabinet before

It’s an older cabinet from Ikea. It was probably used as a CD or media cabinet. It had LOTS of shelves, but looked a little country. However, pretty solid and the perfect size!

The first thing I did was remove all but 3 of the shelves.

Glass knobs and cabinet makeover

I filled one set of the knob holes leaving the others open for the new hardware. If you want to know how to fill in those pesky extra holes you can find out here.

I painted the outside with Artifact which is  a light gray color. The inside was painted with Revive, a light sage green color. I thought the combination looked pretty  together.

I really like the texture of the chalky finish paint for this painted bathroom cabinet makeover. It has a very smooth finish and goes on very silky. It took just two coats without primer to cover it.

The sage green  on the inside has some gray undertones, it made a nice contrast from the gray paint.

I added some fun things on the shelf before I filled it with toilet paper. #reality

Coastal inspired decor

I found this fun soap  with an anchor on it at Anthropologie .

Rock soap

I also found this rock soap too. It’s too pretty to use! Though I am sure one of my kids will find a way when I am not looking.

I love how much the cabinet is updated with just a little paint and a few new knobs. It adds some much needed storage space for a smaller bathroom.

I hope you loved this bathroom cabinet makeover, you can peek at our  upstairs bathroom makeover here.

  1. What chalk paint did you use? I am doing a project soon (repainting 2 side tables for my bedroom) & have a recipe to make my own with flat paint & plaster of paris. Supposedly this requires no prep on the wood before you paint. In the past I have used regular paint with great success, but wanted to try the chalk paint & eliminate the sanding step.
