Sink Cabinet Change style


I bought the sink cabinet Hemnes Rattviken with 2 drawers in white color. When I brought it home, the modern design and white color of the cabinet did not match my New England style interior of the bathroom (and the house itself). I decided to change the appearance of the cabinet by changing its style and color.

I went to Home Depot/Lowe’s to find the wooden molding and the new paint that would make the cabinet look more interesting. I glued the wooden molding to the surfaces, also replaced the cheap and simple looking Ikea knobs of the drawers with the refined knobs from Anthropology. Then I painted the cabinet blue and applied the top polyurethane protective layer. Now every time I come to the bathroom, my heart is filled with joy.
