Memo Cabinet...True Beauty

I forgot to take pictures of this cabinet before I
got so excited and started painting her..:)
She was a regular, ole medicine cabinet with a mirror in
the front. It was an light oak color and had been sitting on
the shelf at my local goodwill. I actually passed her up
and then had to go back the next day and hope she was still
there because I had remembered, (big surprise that I remembered something...hence the need
for the memo board)...:)
why I wanted it....

so I painted her a cheery orange, and I took, the mirror out and transferred to the inside.
I took the chip board that was inside and painted it with home made chalk board paint.
(which is just 1/2 cup of latex paint and a table spoon of unsanded grout)
 I thought it was a pretty clever saying if I do say so myself...and I do...:)
Look inside for true beauty...
and see....yourself....:)
BUT just don't look inside my GARAGE!!!

CAUSE THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL FIND!!!! A MESS!!!  This is me trying to price everything for my booth that I have to have done by Monday morning....UGH!!!!   Have a BEAUTIFUL day anyway...:)

Lovely idea! I once in awhile see little cabinets like this and never would have thought of it--love it. Have a great weekend.

This is such a great project. Not just the outcome of it but the way you brought the sentiment to life in moving the mirror to the inside. Thanks for sharing at this week's BFF!
