DIY Bathroom Cabinet

I am so excited to share Mr. LMB’s latest build with you guys for so many reasons. One, is this is one of the bigger things he has built in the month we have been living in Michigan. Two because it’s just beautiful & he is so creative. & three, he designed, built, & painted this piece all himself. Usually he builds & I paint, but this time he wanted to & he did so great if I do say so myself! It’s his first piece he has painted so I think he is a natural. I came up with the concept of the bathroom cabinet because we needed some extra storage in our tiny upstairs bathroom & the space above the toilet was being wasted. We had a couple of old windows laying around so the idea of making a DIY bathroom cabinet out of an antique window became a reality.

Our bathroom upstairs is far from “finished”, but this DIY cabinet is the beginning to it being done. I love how it adds the rustic touch to the bathroom among the gray cabinets, marble counters, & crisp white walls. We currently have a new light fixture, but it might be changing soon & I’m on the hunt for the perfect mirror along with a towel rack & other things for the space. BUT this cabinet is making me super happy & guess what? I have forever in this home so I don’t need to rush it.

For our bathroom makeover I shopped mostly at Marshalls for our accessories. It’s been my one stop shop for a lot of things & the bath accessories are always the best. Candles for bath time, my current favorite is the warm tobacco pipe, it sounds odd but is strangely lovely. The glass jars are great for cotton balls, Q-tips, & dental floss. I also love the little glass jars from Marshalls with the wooden tops which promptly hold my soaps & lotion bars. I utilized a vase for all of my makeup brushes which works amazing & makes them easily accessible. The washcloths, plant, & other candles are also from Marshalls. I’m not lying when I say it’s a one stop shop which works great for someone like me who doesn’t like driving all around town for everything.

Since Mr. LMB made the cabinet, he is the better one to explain how you can make your own cabinet. Head on over to his blog, Craftsmandrive.com to see all of the details. Also, if you love it, head on over there to tell him what a great job he did. I can’t say how much I love this little cabinet. The door opens so easily & it has tons of room for storing the things I use everyday in this room so that it frees up all the space on the countertop. Such a relief for this tiny bathroom. The cabinet is pretty large for the room, but I love the big impact that it has in the space & how it has become a huge focal point in the space. The rustic wood, his amazing paint job, & the antique glass just make my heart happy.

So what do you think of our new/old bathroom cabinet? Want to know something awesome? Mr. LMB actually made two of these lovely cabinets & one of them is for sale in my booth at Painted Farm Girl! I mean, if you are making one you might as well make two right? haha We happen to have two windows laying around so this seemed logical & we figured someone in the area might light the bathroom cabinet as much as we do so they could have one in their house too. Can’t wait to add more to this bathroom soon & update you on it. Let me know what you think in the comments below, find me on Facebook, or chat with me on Instagram.¬†xx

  7. Love this cabinet!! It is exactly what my bathroom has been missing! Our bathroom has a similar set up so I am wondering if it is better to open up toward the shower or the counter? I could see advantages of both. Also how did you guys apply the paint on top of the stain?
