Old bathroom, small restoration





Materials: Voxnan

Description: I liked the idea of renovating my old bathroom inexpensively, so after whitewashed walls and made some minor technical editing, I thought I should have reused my old series VOXNAN.

With a jar of decoupage fund, a gel for crackling effect, one of flatting, glittering leaves and a brush, I repainted the mirror and the cabinet.

Once finished I hung the cabinet horizontally removing one door to be used to make the shelf.

A panel curtain (ANNO AMORF), properly turned into a tent packet with the application of rings, and the smallest available BILLY with his door, complete my work.

    I wouldn’t say that ;-) BUT you should think about doing something with the realy ugly brown mosaic-wall….

    I can’t change nothing :-(
    Anyway, the mosaic is dark pink…

    The after look is so much more cluttered. Like it’s a 15 year old’s bathroom. Sorry but you should have kept it the way it was before. Or maybe instead of whitewashing, you could have stained the wood pieced darker. And instead of flipping the cabinet on it’s side, i would have just moved it over more towards the side wall so it wasn’t up against the mirror.

    Hey, I think you did a great job with what you have. I love the leaves on the mirror. Very clever turning the cabinet on its side and using the door for additional shelving. Two pieces for the price of one!
