Metamorphosis Monday: Old Cupboard Makeover

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday on the prairie!
Its time for an old barn wood cupboard Metamorphosis!!!


My guest bathroom is very small, has one small under-the-sink cupboard for storage, no medicine cabinet and literally no counter space. Needless to say, storage is a little bit of an issue.
So when I came across this barn wood cabinet in an antique mall... I saw EXTRA STORAGE written all over it!!
While I like yellow, it clashes with the decor of my guest bathroom. I decided to paint it white, sand it a bit to give it a distressed "shabby" look and to accentuate the old barn wood. I didn't think to take pictures of the "process"... but I bet y'all have vivid enough imaginations to picture what painting a cupboard might look like. ;) After it was painted, I added some flower "wallies" to the outside of the cupboard to spruce it up a bit.


In case you have never used them... wallies are soooo easy to work with. Just wet the back, smooth over surface with a sponge... and let dry. Easy peasy. And when you want to remove them... just wet them again and peel!

It matches my Waverly Vintage Rose shower curtain...
And just look at this additional storage! haha

I painted the inside white as well...One more look...
And there is my metamorphosis!
For more metamorphoses... check out Susan's Between Naps on the Porch!
