bathroom cupboard make-over!

Seriously, this cupboard was so grungy and awful that I didn't even think to take a before photo. Now I really wish I had because I love the way this fresh cupboard looks. :) I bought this pine cupboard over 20 years ago, at a Country Folk Art Show. Here are the doors and center divider that I removed. I scrubbed, sanded and then spray painted it a glossy dark chocolate brown. Using Elmer's spray glue, I then applied some fabric to the back of the shelf spaces. This cupboard was meant to primarily hold my face cloths and hand towels.
This is our second bathroom. The one that guests don't use...some people don't even know it exists. ;) haha! We all shower in here every day though because we like this shower best. :)
Some fresh ceiling paint (and ceiling repair done by yours truly - I am getting so good at mudding!), bold green (I know, it's not for everybody!) wall paint, cute new curtains (2 rod pocket panels, material purchased at jo-ann's), new light & faucet and it feels like an updated bathroom.I'm linking up to The House of Grace Blog, Twice Owned Tuesday challenge and to Look What I Made! I really appreciate seeing old pieces get new life!
Thanks for stopping by! hugs, patti

Oh lala! LOVE this Patti! Love the polka dots and the green paint! The shelf looks fantastic! I need something in ALL of my bathrooms as none of them have decor (one doesn't even have a shower curtain!). I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for a piece to redo like this at a garage sale this summer! Thanks for the inspiration!

Love tha green paint so much-it is so fresh looking! Love how you can "see" what could become of something that might otherwise be thrown out!
