A favorite corner…

Our glorious 70’s bathroom had a medicine cabinet



like many glorious bathrooms had…

This would be when we moved in…Don't judge.



see it sticking out of the wall…Outside…a door. Inside…little glass shelves inside a plastic box.



When we re-did the bathroom, I knew I still wanted to have a cabinet there.



And as serendipity would have it…I found what was once a mirror…I guess you would open up the doors and the mirror was inside.

Only…the mirror part was broken. so It was just doors and a frame.I got it for a song.



We went to work and cut a large hole in the wall to inset a new medicine cabinet...



That we proceeded to take the door off . just needed the inside.

And then affixed the wooden mirror-less doors on top of the new medicine cab shelves



are ya with me?

Ta-da...still small…but handy…and…uh…unique


and yep...I keep pix of kidlets in there. Doesn't everyone?

just love finds like that...of course you are brilliant to have realized it's potential... Bravo! I'm a petit envious...I too have a medicine cabinet I can't wait to replace...now i'm inspired...gracias!

Melissa said...

Wow. That is flipping awesome! Very clever use of the new doors, which I love. If my medicine cabinet looked that pretty on the outside I might be inspired to also make it look that pretty on the inside. And I love the pictures in there. What a happy surprise. :)

love it!! love the doors! I am so happy to see I am not the only person who decorates 'inside' their medicine cabinet;) I have photos and a little oil painting. Those things make me happy when I open the door (I am trying to counter balance the image of 'me' since there is also mirror on the inside:)

niartist said...

Linda it's spectacular! I'm with Steve, it looks like a little temple of goodies in there! :)

I took pics of my pergola all dressed up this afternoon (with the 2 hour lull in the rain), and I REALLY hope you'll stop by and take a peak! :)
