Brightening up a bathroom cabinet

Whilst trawling the internet in the last week, I was inspired by a project where someone backed their bathroom cabinet with a decorative paper.  It struck me as such an easy, cheap and renter friendly update.  All you need is a sheet of nice wrapping paper – mine was about $7 for a sheet.

Then I remover all my products, and the glass shelves.  I put the sheet of paper up to the cabinet to know how much I needed to trim off.  (I might have overtrimmed… oh well… what do they say about measure twice cut once?).  Then I placed a few strategic pieces of double sided tapes on the cabinet, pressed the paper in. It looked great, and took next to no time at all.

Shame I didn’t take a photo from a greater distance, the paper I chose nicely matches the colour of the mosaic tile border and floor tiles in the bathroom. Happy coincidence there.

  1. That looks really nice 🙂 I am a little bit obsessed with mould at the moment (damn shower in the kitchen with poor ventilation!), so have to ask if there’s a danger the paper will go mouldy.

    • Definately a chance! I did think I’d contact over the top – you know the plastic adhesive they cover library books with? But so far I haven’t.

      I hate mould. My parent’s place has rising damp and falling damp and damp in the middle seriously! So pleased to have a more stable environment in my place
