Just a Little Black Cupboard

A few weeks ago I saw a little black bathroom cupboard at the thrift store but I didn't get it because it was spray painted black and everywhere something had touched it the paint had scratched right off. The next week, however, the little black bathroom cupboard was still in the thrift store and so it must have just been mine. Anyway, I took it home because I knew just where we needed it...in Michelle's bathroom. Michelle's bathroom is really cluttered and messy. Apparently it takes a million products to make her beautiful every day.

 

I wish I had taken a picture of the cupboard when it was black but I forgot all about it. I just took it out on the porch and started sanding...and sanding...and sanding...   Took me most of the day to get as much black off of the cupboard as I could. Then came the painting...coat after coat. Did I mention I am not exactly a painter? I was still doing coats the next day.


Then I decided that since her bathroom is mostly yellow that we needed some yellow stenciled on. I ended up with this.


Phil got it mounted on the wall for me tonight which turned out easier than I thought it was going to be. 


I cleaned up and organized Michelle's bathroom again and now we have this:

    1. Usually I have to look forever to find exactly what I need at the thrift store or flea markets. I was surprised this one showed up so quickly!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I think the stencil made all the difference. After I got it painted I thought, it still needed something and I had the stencils in with my cake decorating stuff and had never used them and so now it is a paint stencil :)
