We've been looking for a new medicine cabinet, as well. It's not something we HAD to change right away, but the ones that came with the house are worn, and I'm not a big fan of the style.
We made a stop off at the grand opening of Habitat in Humanity's Re-store in San Jose, and took our old sconces with us as a donation. After looking around for a bit, we spied two beautiful medicine cabinets marked at 84% off the original price. We snatched them both up at $125 each, and I smiled all the way home. It felt really good to be supporting a good cause and to get something so pretty!
Here are some photos of the medicine cabinet that had been in the Hall Bath.
There are three doors on this sucker, making it hard to find anything. And there should be three shelves, but we only have two.
Notice how the three separate mirrors can cause you to see yourself in triplicate. Weird, kind of like how I put my camera on the top of my head to get this shot. Whatevs, yo.
So we ripped that old medicine cabinet down, off the wall and had a big blank space with at least four different paint colors underneath.
I spackled the holes, and then painted the blank space. I knew that the new medicine cabinet was a little narrower, so I wanted to make sure none of the old colors could be seen. I wanted it to be fresh and clean underneath the new cabinet. It's a little like wearing nice socks under your boots ... I can't stand wearing sports socks in nice boots, it's just a matter of principle.
And here's the finished look!
