You look in it everyday. It holds some of your most important daily items. It’s neglected.
Our bathroom is very neutral in color, so I figured adding a little surprise splash of color in the medicine cabinet is a great way to sneak some in. Color helps create energy and, Lord knows, I can use a little assistance with that in the morning! I painted the inside of the door with chalkboard paint, so I can leave notes to my family and leave myself reminders of products we are running low on, if I took my vitamins, and anything else that pops into my head. I used a ‘Tiffany Blue’ acrylic paint for the back of the cabinet and for the thin wood trim I used to frame in the chalkboard. A few organizers from The Container Store tidied up my products and my mornings just got a little bit happier!
Here is the ordinary cabinet before:
Here it is after:
What you’ll need:
Tape the edge of your cabinet to protect it and apply 2 coats of chalkboard paint.
If you make a wood frame: paint the trim first (so you don’t have to be careful once it’s installed), measure the size of your chalkboard and glue the pieces up (I taped them together on the back first, applied all the glue, and then adhered it in one piece.
