Bathroom Makeover Part 2


Before the paint had time to dry I was already working on the next step.

I purchased this cabinet at Wal Mart for under 40.00. I wouldnt say it is top quality but it does have some curb appeal and the box said easy assembly!

Easy assembly? .....Yes indeed! Just ask Madison

The kids were out of school Friday for a snow (ice) day so we had some fun decorating and bonding.

The box did say easy assembly but hanging it was another story. My sweet husband was not having the best of luck hanging it. He is a stickler for finding a stud.
 Smud..stud... I  always say. Just hang that baby with the help of those (rubber. no. studs. found. in .wall. thing. a .ma. jigies) and let her fly!

That is just what he did too.

Now because the cabinet was under 40.00 you can guess what kind of beautiful hardware came along posing as knobs....plastic!
 I overlooked that fact because it was so pretty with it's beadboard back panel and doors.

I replaced the plastic impostors posing as knobs with these glass beauties....much better! You're welcome Mr. cabinet~


I am so exicited about my little cabinet....we are on our way!

  3. I was so disapointed when I got one of those cabinets form my mom for free and we didn't have a place for it. Yours looks nice, and good call on the knobs!

  6. Ok, I will breathe deep and try to practice a little patience. ;o) But I just know it will be fabulous, so I can't help it! I am trying to finish up a couple project this week, too...so need a little inspiration. I am running out of design gusto I guess you could say. I agree...must be the cold. ;o) ~mary~

  8. Susie, am loving those glass knobs. I have been looking for a cabinet like that with the towel bar to hang in our master bath. I have this great idea of doing a mini bathroom makeover when hubs is out of town. But I can't seem to find that particular cabinet around here. Glad you found it though. Looking forward to seeing the finishing touches you will be putting on this room.

  16. I could use this in Caden's bathroom. He has a large space of wall above the toilet and his cabinet is beadboard doors. I could paint it and it would match. Do you think it could be painted? Thanks for this great find. I hope I can find it at our Walmart. I was just there a couple of hours ago.

  19. Susie, I'm loving seeing the progress of your bathroom. The cabinet is cute especially with your touch of the knobs. We have a cabinet similar to this in our master bath but it's oak looking. I've thought several times of painting it but haven't wanted to take the task on yet.

  21. That is really cute! We found a cute one a year or so ago at Costco (shock) and we snagged her up and finally hung her a couple of months ago. But, now that bathroom should be repainted. LOL

  28. Ooooh, Susie :) What a fun new look your little bath is going to have. Fresh, crisp, and happy. That's my kind of place to pee.

  29. Wow...that looks way more expensive than $40! Beautiful!

  30. I've been looking for something like that for my kids bath...love that it's under $40, everything I've seen has been twice that. It's hard to pay $80 for something to hold a towel and some tp! :)

  31. I LOVE that! I have needed something like that in my master 1/2 bath, and that looks perfect. I guess I haven't thought to look at Wally World! : )
