Make Do and Mend Mondays

My blogging friend Heidi started Make Do and Mend Mondays back in May.  This week I am joining in!

We recently painted our master bathroom.  Not having a lot of money, we needed to "make do" with the items we already had, with the exception of the towel bars, hand towel ring, toilet paper holder, and light fixture, all of which I got at a great price.  Anyway, as builders are wont to do, our vanity is plain and not very functional, so we had placed an old bathroom storage cabinet in there to store our excess.  It always stood out since it was white, and the vanity is oak, so I decided to cover it - with contact paper.  I have had much success doing that in the past, including covering an old kitchen countertop in our last house (it held up well), so I took the cabinet apart, and painstakingly covered each piece before putting it back together.  I am pleased with the results, and that old cabinet no longer stands out.

I hope to have some more projects to share with you before too long.

Woohoo! I am glad you are bitten by the Make do and Mend bug. I find the more I do, the more I want to find to do. Your cabinet came out beautifully so it was well worth the effort. I will add your link to our Make do and Mend party.
