Medicine Cabinet Makeover

Both of the bathrooms in our house had those cheesy metal medicine cabinets that are built into the wall. I didn’t take any before photos, but I bet you all get the ugly visual. My incredibly talented and imaginative husband told me he could simply build a box and make it a small built-in. Bring it baby.

This is what it looked like when we took them out.



And guest:


So he simply measured both (they were actually a little different) and bought a sheet of MDF wood from Home Depot. He also got trim for the outside of the box and a strip of 90 degree trim to hold up the shelves. He cut, nailed, and liquid nailed them in. I caulked.


I measured for shelves (two per cabinet) and had four shelves made at the glass shop with beveled edges. They were $10 each. Then I painted the entire cabinet and trim a bright white. So far he finished the guest bathroom’s cabinet, but ran out of trim and steam to finish the master. I’ll keep you posted😉

Here’s the guest bathroom’s finished cabinet:
