Today’s project => Medicine Cabinet!
These things are in nearly every home and they are so boring and drab. Especially if they are old and yellowed on the inside. Gross.
And I don’t know how previous tenants had been able to create so much discolouration but this is what I have been living with for the past 2 and half years.
Recently I learned about patterned adhesive contact paper and had found a few posts online of people using it to resurface their counter tops and using it to cover up bad patterns on old tile. As a renter I obviously want to spend as little money as possible on this place and this project produced such a fun end result.
This stuff is fairly easy to work with. The curved surfaces of the medicine cabinet, however, were not easy to work with. Took my time and the final surface isn’t perfect but I love the look of it!
I used some left over wall paint for the inside of the metal door – which I’m sure is a big no-no in the paint world – I don’t care as it looks so much better than it did!
Up close the corners have a few folds in the them and there a few bubbles here and there. However, it still looks fantastic. I wrapped it around the edges so that you could see a hint of it without having to open the door too.
Took about an hour and a lot of cutting of the paper but all totally worth it.
Now to decide what I will tackle next…
