Yes… I know I have a problem 🙂 If you ever need a Bath and Body Works lotion – I think I know someone who has a couple.
I am really excited to share our DIY Bathroom Cabinet that we put together for under $20! We have some storage in our bathroom but to be honest… we have a LOT of stuff. If I bring home another lotion from Bath & Body Works – I think Nate will throw it away!
DIY Bathroom Cabinet onder $20
- Behr Paint – We used this color
- Nails – We used these
- Cabinet Door – we got ours for $5 at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore
- Cabinet Latch – optional
- Wood – 1x4s and ¼ x4s
- Saw – Nate used a Miter Saw
- Screw Driver
- Paint Brush
- Pick out desired cabinet door and measure
- Use Saw to cut your 1×4 boards to the length of each side to make the frame
- Assemble the frame with nails – we used brad nails
- Measure the entire length of the frame and add two 1×4 pieces to the back for hanging purposes – See photo 🙂
- You could also add a full back to the cabinet. Ours was going up on the wall so we decided just to add the two pieces.
- Measure the inside of the frame and cut ¼ x4s to shelf length
- Carefully measure and assemble the shelves using your brad nails
- Install hinges and attach cabinet door
- Paint or stain to desired color and add Cabinet Latches, if desired
- Fill with all of your stuff 🙂
A couple of things that I would have done differently:
- I would have painted our pieces before Nate assembled the cabinet. It took up way more space and was more difficult to paint it when it was already assembled.
- I highly recommend getting the cabinet latches. This cabinet has been hanging for a couple weeks already and the door sat a tiny bit open… I wasn’t in love until Nate added the latches.
For reference, our frame ended up being 14.5” by 40”. Each shelf is 13” long. The distance between the shelves varies – we measured based on certain projects. The top three are 6.5” apart and then one is 7.5” and the last space is 10.5”. The wall color in our bathroom is Rock Candy by Sherwin Williams.
Overall, I am really happy with our new cabinet and lord knows we needed it! Our bathroom products were the last thing we had left to unpack and I am so thankful that Nate started this project – even if it took a couple weeks to get it right!
