Laundry Room Project Part 6: Decorative Cabinet

Although I’m generally considered the Kijiji master in our house, it was Tim that found this little gem. I wanted a small cabinet to hold odds and ends and add a bit of weight to the far wall of my new laundry room. This ghastly piece was pretty ugly with its black paint and gold accents, but we loved the wrought iron behind the glass and at $30 it was a great deal!

The glass and iron pieces were secured in place by a few screws, so they were easily removed for painting. After roughing up the surface, I primed and painted the cabinet out in my favourite Benjamin Moore white ~ Simply White OC-117.  Originally, I gave the wrought iron a fresh coat of black spray paint, but when I put it back together I didn’t like the contrast and opted to take it apart and repaint the iron white. I love the white iron behind the glass and am pleased I took the time to re-do it. Spray paint comes in limited colours, so I was not able to get a perfect match, but I actually don’t mind that the whites are a little off.

  1. Good eye Tim and Cindy you’ve turned it into a work of art. I love it and I love your hamper too. Can’t wait to see your house one day when we are in the West.

    • Can’t wait to be your hosts! I have to say this laundry room has changed my life. Gone are the days of laundry piling up…it just always seems to be done. So easy to stay on top of this task with it conveniently located on the main floor.

Love to Hear From You!
