I’ve been on the hunt for a small cabinet for our master bathroom for months and months. We needed a little extra storage for towels and toiletries. Is there such a thing as too much storage in the bathroom? I think not.
My patience paid off when I found this shapely, but raggedy, cabinet at my favorite flea-tique a few weeks ago. I was happy to pay the $15 listed on the price tag. Imagine the squeals when I saw the “Everything 1/2 Off” sign! That’s $7.50, baby!!! Yeeehaaaw!
After a little elbow grease and some paint, it’s perfect for our bathroom. Love it!
I’ve been wanting to try the Behr Paint and Primer and this seemed like a good opportunity. Mostly because I was feeling super lazy and using two products was way too much work.
My thoughts? I like it! It’s a little more expensive than regular paint, but I didn’t have to buy primer so I guess it evens out. I think I put on 3 coats of paint (4 on the door fronts) and the paint went on beautifully and covered really well. The color I used is called Polar White and it’s a semi-gloss finish.
I gave the cabinet a (very) light sanding, then I used the brush to paint the edges and corners. I love those small sized rollers (NOT the foam ones) for painting furniture. I know that purists will say that you MUST use a brush because a roller won’t cover, give you a smooth finish, fly you to the moon, whatever. But they’re easy. And I’m all about keeping things easy.
Some new knobs that I picked up at Hobby Lobby the last time I was in NC and it’s ready to go!
Isn’t it amazing what a few coats of paint can do? What’s on your list of things to paint this summer?
