Curbside Cabinet Updated

Curbside Cabinet Updated

I needed storage in our master bathroom.  Our new house is very limited on storage so I need something that I could put over the toilet that could hold cleaning supplies and some other items.

This cabinet was a solid piece of wood and I was so excited. I knew I could make this work for me. I found this cabinet beside the curb last week and I knew I needed it. Someone had put it out for pickup, and that was me. Here is what it looked like when I found it.

Someone had actually painted the piece. It was not a stencil.

Although it was pretty, it did not go in my bathroom.  I had to paint it, but first I had to sand the flowers and then put a coat of Kilns on it and then painted it all white. 

I put a few decorative items on the bottom shelf. The mustache mug and brush were my Dad's. 

I have thought of putting a stencil on the doors but I have not found one I like yet.

I was able to put most of my cleaners in there and still add some decorative items as well. Don't you just love those curbside pieces, especially when they serve such a great purpose.

Transforming a Cabinet from the Junk Pile

If you follow me, you know that we have bulk pickup here every month. A couple of months ago, I found this one nearby.

It needed so much help, but of course, I like the challenge.

Discarded bookcase becomes much needed storage

I have been away from my blog the last couple of weeks, but it has all been good. I spent a week visiting my grand kids that was so special. When they live far away, you certainly appreciate the time when you are together. 

I arrived home from my visit to the grand kids and my daughter had actually arrived the day before. She has moved here from California and I am so excited. She will be living in our other house where her new job is. We headed for the other house with the few remaining personal items that she didn't sell. Having to sell all her household stuff was hard for her but she seems to be adjusting.

This bookcase was something that she and I picked up that someone discarded along the road.

What to do with a Swiffer container?

I don't use the Swiffer too often, it is more my husband's idea. I tend to use one were I can wash the pad instead of tossing it away. I guess if he wants to clean the floors, then I should be grateful and I am.

Now he has used these in the past to hold some of his things in the garage.
