The Power of Paint

Here’s an idea that turns a rusty cabinet into the life of the party, thanks to a fresh coat of paint in an eye-popping shade. As a finishing touch, a light was installed over the top shelf. Although this upgrade is better suited for a man cave, it’s a great example of how you can perk up a powder room with a can of spray paint.

  • Everything used in this DIY can be found at your local office supply store. The polka-dot paper was cut to size and applied using double-stick tape. The inside of the cabinet door was transformed into a space for notes and reminders by adding corkboard.

  • A little imagination turns a flea market find into a rustic redux. A vintage washboard ($18) with a custom-cut mirror makes a great door for an old wooden cabinet. This washboard has its original zinc panel that you see when you open the hinged door. Using salvaged materials makes for good DIY projects.

  • You can use every inch of wall space in your cabinet by adding powder-coated metal strips ($6 for a 2-by-14-inch strip). Once the strips are in place, anything magnetic will stick, such as magnet hooks, small storage containers, and button magnets.

  • This vintage suitcase packs a lot of bathroom baggage. Even the cabinet door is used to store a few grooming tools. Other upgrades include a fresh lining and wood shelves wrapped with paper, then finished with a waterproof sealer.

  • Here’s a genius secret storage idea — each pre-made, recessed cabinet comes with a hinged picture frame for concealment. It’s perfect for couples or family members who want their own individual storage space, plus it’s a great way to stump snooping houseguests. A 16-by-13-inch cabinet is $299; you supply your own artwork — photos clipped from magazines work great!

  • If your toiletries are display-worthy, show them off by removing your cabinet door. While vintage yardsticks and glue were used to create the frame shown here, just tap your imagination when exploring options that work for you. Wood trim cut to size or small square tiles can be applied using an epoxy.

  • A long-cherished wooden picture frame inspired this DIY cabinet. The frame was constructed from reclaimed wood, and the handsome mirror that cost only $10 was attached with hinges. Magnetic catches keep the mirror closed.

  • All it takes is 10 minutes and a piece of sheet metal to turn your cabinet door into extra storage space. Just epoxy in place and ta-da: You have a magnetic surface where you can place toothbrush holders, mini-erase boards for notes, and hooks for jewelry and other small objects. A video tutorial shows you how to make this cabinet.
