OLE' TIME 3 MIRROR MEDICINE CABINET REDO






















HAD POSTED A FEW WEEKS AGO
ASKING THE QUESTION,
SHOULD I KEEP MY OLD 
3 MIRROR MEDICINE CABINET?
OR IS THAT TO 
OLD FASHIONED, SHOULD
I REPLACE IT WITH A PLAIN MIRROR
IN MY BATHROOM?

EVERYONE SAID GET RID
OF IT AND JUST USE A MIRROR..
WELL I COULDN'T 
RESIST A CHALLENGE.

I LIKE BEING ABLE TO STORE MY
TOOTHBRUSH AND COSMETIC'S
ETC... IN A EASY TO REACH 
PLACE. SO I FIGURED, WHAT DO 
I HAVE TO LOSE...


THIS IS THE PIECE IN 
QUESTION...
BEFORE...

PRETTY GENERIC LOOKING!

SO HERE IT IS AND I HOPE
YOU LIKE MY DECISION TO 
KEEP IT.






















SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?

  5. Lauren- We're getting ready for a home appraisal and just finished up putting a beautiful new light fixture in our main bathroom. We have the exact same cabinet, but I've been scared to paint it. This looks fabulous! Thanks for sharing! Angela @ Mrs. White Twig and Tea

  6. You took a good decision!I didn't see the potential! And now looks great with the wall color, with the light fixture... I think works perfect for your needs, has an eclectic look, upgrade the mirror and you didn't expend that much! Great job!

  13. Do love it! I kept my old 1956 medicine cabinet when everyone said get rid of that old stuff. It's getting better and better with age. Love that you punched this up with color and cute knobs. Great job!

  21. You are a Rock Star! Pure genius to keep it and make it work and I love those knobs. You actually made it lok vintage and awesome. Thanks for helping all of us to remember to try a recycle first. If it doesn't work, it only cost you some paint and a few knobs and at the price of mirrors today, that's a bargain!
