I have plenty of pictures of the garden apartment basement before.
But for some reason, I don’t have one at an angle that includes the medicine cabinet/vanity mirror actually in the wall.
My dear mother-in-law removed it for us during our June Basement Demo Day.
Then it sat on the shelf for over a month.
As you can see, it’s old, heavy, & metal. I’m not in love with the flower etching at the top of the mirror but, other than that, it’s a decent cabinet in need of a little love.
The edges were covered in rust and the inside was covered in contact paper. Our dear friend Greg removed the contact paper and got a little buddy-buddy with some steel wool.
One coat of white semi-gloss enamel later, and it looks like a completely different piece. The enamel is good for metal & rust, so it should be exactly what we need.
It’s amazing what a little paint can do.
So fresh & so clean clean.
Greg meticulously taped off the edges around the mirror so we could change the edge from black to white. It’s amazing how simply changing it from black to white makes it look so different. I almost like the etching!
I think we’ll do another quick coat but then this can be installed & checked off the list!! Sweet.
