Our guest bathroom needed a serious facelift, but it’s hard when the previous owners had renovated only 5 years ago to justify completing tearing out the new (slightly dated) cabinets. I chose to do light-update. New mirror, new lights, new fixtures and then there was that awful medicine cabinet. Initially, I removed the door, use a screw driver to remove it from the wall and realized it was a completely dry walled hole underneath. I asked my hubby if he could do some nice build it shelving and he agreed. But with the list of business commitments I knew he had coming up decided I needed an interim plan.It turned out so well that it might be the permanent plan.
I had all the light switches laying out in the garage ready to be sprayed with Rustoleum hammered bronze spray paint and as I transformed my old beige plug covers into beautiful new updated ones, I pondered what that ugly plastic cabinet might also look like newly painted. I had nothing to lose, so I went ahead and sprayed it. I wasn’t sure, I’ll admit when I started. But after two coats on the box and shelves, I waited for it to dry and reinserted it into the wall. I was amazed. For a $7.99 bottle of spray paint and about a total time investment of under an hour, I had a really nice alternative to the nasty, dated, mirrored medicine cabinet that hung there before. I bet there’s a lot of you out there with the same one who could use this technique. And Rustoleum carried a large array of colors, so you can create a lot of different looks. Remove your plug and switch covers and spray them with the same color for a bathroom with a cohesive look.
