I’ve been wanting to post this DIY project for the longest time! Last fall my husband decided our bathroom needed some work so he tiled the floor, changed the paint color of the walls, and added some new bathroom accessories. Needless to say, everything turned out beautifully, but the mirror door to the medicine cabinet didn’t make it during construction. Really, I think he secretly damaged it so we would have another project (which was totally fine with me). I think he loves DIY projects even more than I do!
We’re very drawn to all things vintage and wooden, so I had this great idea to reuse a wood pallet we had leftover from I don’t even remember what! This is such an inexpensive way to add charm and warmth to your bathroom. You can chose any wood stain color you like, we went with a weathered gray color for that vintage feel. Our medicine cabinet measures 25 1/4 in by 15 1/2 in inside so we made the door 26 in by 17 1/2 inches. Most medicine cabinets are a standard size, but if yours is different, cut accordingly so the door is slightly larger than the inside storage area. Everything you need can be found at Home Depot. I’ve added some links to make it easier.
