Repainting our bathroom cabinets had been on our list of home projects since we painted our kitchen cabinets with chalk paint this summer. This bathroom is the bathroom our guests use… and the décor is dramatically different from the rest of our house. As a newlywed, I gave Taylor reign over design of this Razorback bathroom. (In hindsight, maybe there should have been some stipulations.)
But anyways we knew the cabinets would look best painted black because Taylor built a black frame over the builder grade mirror when we first moved in.
This is what we were dealing with before.
(Taylor building the frame you see on the mirror,)
I loved the chalk paint we used for the kitchen cabinets, but Reclaim paint appealed to me because of the built in sealant. This paint deserves it’s very own blog post. Read my “All about Reclaim Paint” blog post! I am. in. love. with. Reclaim. 3-in-1 paint.
This photo was after one coat of paint. It only needed one more light coat. No sanding. No priming. No sealing. Not too good to be true! Real life.
These were the only tools and supplies I needed for the entire project. You can totally do this too!
It’s a good idea to mark where the doors go by labeling a little piece of painting tape on each door.
Hardware made all the difference on these cabinets.
Cabinet hardware was provided by D. Lawless Hardware. Please keep in mind all opinions are my own!
This was such a fun package to get in the mail!
They look like NEW cabinets, right?
Nope. Just RECLAIMED.
