CLEANING CABINET MAKEOVER

Hello friends!  I’m still on a binge of cleaning stuff out, throwing away junk, selling things, improving them, etc.  After being fed up with the state of my cabinet under the sink in my guest bathroom, I took matters into my own hands.  It was where I stored all of my cleaning supplies.  But it was so dark, and a total disaster.

If you’re new to The Striped House, you should know that I moved around my rooms.  My intended family room is now my dining room.  So…  I have these built ins around the fireplace that had been a catchall for junk.  Not anymore!

I cleaned out those built-in cabinets, primed, and painted them.  But I wanted to add a little something to it.  I originally found a really pretty floral gift paper on sale at TJMaxx for $3.  So used it to “wallpaper” the back side of the cabinet.  But, after stepping back and taking it in, I realized it wasn’t me.

So I looked for something new, and fell in love with this classic black and white stripe wrapping paper I found at Target for $2!

I measured the back wall of the cabinet and added a half inch on each measurement.  I used re-positionable spray adhesive – a very light coat!  I positioned one corner of the paper where I wanted it and kept working with it to get it flush with top and left side.  So now I’ve got extra on the right and bottom sides.  I gently used a plastic putty knife to get the paper snug into the corners.  Then used an Exacto Knife to trim the excess.

Easy peezy, huh?  And this is appeals the commitment-phobic inside of me 😉  Now I can see what I have, and it’s organized (versus just in a pile!).

Until next time, happy DIY’ing!
