Refinishing an Old Bathroom Cabinet

I have had a great time to rest and enjoy family during the holidays, I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Years. I want to thank each and everyone of you who have come and visited my blog and especially those who have left comments.

Without comments blogging really would be know fun. It is the meeting of new friends through blogging that I enjoy the most. The interaction between one another  is what is so precious. Thank you so much for your comments, I love them and would enjoy more. I will always reply to your comments, they are very important to me to know that someone stopped by to visit.

I found a great old bathroom cabinet at my favorite junk shop, Lost and Found.  The cabinet was just one of those things that I knew just had to come home with me.

All this little cabinet needed was a little tender loving care. I gave it my special paint treatment. Click here to see the process that I use. I really love using this special process to liven up a vintage item. The patina is just perfect.


The top two photos are the before pictures. It was pretty dirty and had paint on it that I didn’t want around my little grands, so off it came.

I chose a lovely pink color called peony by Vintage Market paints. I really love using this wonderful chalk paint. It goes on so easy. I used their top coat over it as well. I wanted it sealed good because it is in the bathroom which gets lots of moisture.

I used glacier from Vintage Market paint on the inside, it gives it a nice fresh look. The cabinet even came with an old toothbrush holder! A bonus right? lol cabinet close up

I did a little distressing on the mirror, which really adds a lot of character and didn’t need to much distressing.  Click here to see the process. Adding a crystal knob made it look perfect.

I have more fun ideas planned for this new year and a great adventure that I will be taking you on. It’s something that has been on my bucket list for a long time.

What are you working on this New Year? Do you have any large or small projects planned? If so I would love to hear about them and if you need s sounding board I am here, just email me. I would love to hear your comments!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. What a great vintage find and a wonderful crackle finish you’ve achieved! It so good to be back to your blog-like visiting an old friend! I am looking forward to what 2016 brings you in blog land and hope we all have a fabulous 2016!


  2. Jo,
    I bet you enjoyed transforming that old cabinet with your distressing faux techniques. Turned out perfectly and the choice of the Pink glass knob evaluated it with additional charm. I like the color pink but have none in our home – except pink stripes on a vintage French Laundry powder can. Oneday I hope you give a tour of your bathroom. Happy New year Jo I look forward to your future projects.


  3. I love that you chose pink for this great cabinet. You have inspired me to finally do something with the two similar cabinets I pickup this summer. I don’t know what I am going to do with them but I had to have them!

    • Hi Ann Marie, if you just had to have them then they belong in your home! I think that this kind of cabinet could be put almost any where in the home. I’m going to keep look out for more. I think they would sale great in my shop as well. Have a wonderful week! xx Jo


  4. Hi Anne Marie,
    Great job repurposing this cabinet! That mirror, though! It’s what really stands out to me! Recently I attempted ghosting a mirror. It just didn’t have the look that authentically worn and time aged vintage mirrors do. You did a wonderful job adding patina to yours though.
