Yard Sale Cabinet Makeover

Remember when I showed you this cute little cabinet I bought at a yard sale? I decided that it would go in my laundry room.


We cleaned it up and my man gave it a fresh coat of white paint.

He's laughing because he knows he is going on the blog!

Then I decided to use some paper that was gray and yellow with the chevron look and modge podge it on the cabinet. So I trimmed the paper to fit and I done 3 coats of modge podge letting it dry in between coats.




While drying I began to decide on the things I wanted to use on the little cabinet for decor.   
I just had to use my little clothespin plant holder.



I found this little sign at the Dollar General and thought it would be perfect to use on my cabinet.


I found this cute camera at Ross and fell in love with it! The camera had just enough blue in it that I knew that it would go great with my gray, yellow and blues I was using. AND I just liked it!



I had found this basket for a 25 cents at a yard sale as well. It was bright yellow but rusted somewhat and the yellow had began to fade. Spray painted it blue and it stores my cute little clothes pins that my friend Shirley Williams gave to me.


Nestled all my little goodies on top of my new cabinet.



And...I am happy as a little bee with cabinet makeover for my laundry room!

Now I must admit...I was going to cover the front panels with the same chevron paper and paint the knobs yellow but did not get around to it. I may wind up doing just that though. But...I do like it as it is.

This was my old bench that I've had for years in my laundry room. It stored EVERYTHING! Actually...way more than it needed to store. It became a place to "dump it all in there". I cleaned it up and it now sits in the grand's play room for them to use as a toy box.


And I replaced it with little cutie! Not too big and not to small. Durable enough that you can sit on it. Just enough space to hold a few pairs of shoes and enough room in the storage bench that I can store magazine's or hide a few dishes from my man! LOL! What I really liked about this bench is the fact that it doesn't take up much room.


Remember the rag tie clothes pin wreath I made?


And the little sign?


Worked out perfect with a floating shelf and coat hanger. And the good part is when I hang sweaters or jackets up on the hanger part I have another place to hang my little sign in the laundry room too.


Simple and not over powering but just enough for my small laundry room.

Stay tuned for makeover on panel box and cabinets over washing machine and dryer!

It's all coming together.


Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. It is all coming together! I love it! You must have a nice sized laundry room, mine feels like a closet (and it has a door to the garage and one to the house so not much wall space!). I LOVE how you redid the cute cabinet. Chevron is one of my favorite things and I love all the little accessories you've added! That clothespin planter??!! So cute! I can't wait to see more!

    1. Thanks Heather. I keep saying the room is small but Marty keeps reminding me that it is a LAUNDRY room...not a living room! LOL! It's plenty big for what I need. And...all the makeover's in that room sure has not caused me to want to do more laundry! LOL!

  4. Hi Cindy, your laundry looks wonderful with your touches and the cabinet turned out fabulous. I love the design you put on the background. Your accents are perfect on it too. I have that same camera and it has a slot on the back like a little bank. Do you have that on yours? Great little bench too. Your creativity is so inspiring.
    Looking forward to more.
    Happy Mother's Day.
    Blessings, CM

    1. Thank you so much sweet lady. Yes, my camera is actually a bank too! But by the time I am finished with the laundry room re-do there will be no money to put in that bank! LOL!

  6. Cindy, Your laundry room is adorable, clean, lovely - I wish I had one like it!
    Mine is in a 47 year old basement and it's very functional, but not at all attractive. Love yours!

    1. Thanks Beth. It's clean right now....LOL! Functional is the best for sure but everyone comes in through my laundry room in my house so have really wanted it to be a little sweeter to the eyes! Thanks for stopping by Beth.

  8. Cindy, I love how your cabinet turned out! I don't think I would cover the front with the chevron. I think it would be too much. Love it just the way it is! Fun that your hubby got a good laugh. Your laundry room is cute and you have so many fun items!
    hugs,
