I have three cabinets in my sewing room that were originally bathroom or linen cabinets. Let’s jazz them up with some vinyl to make them look a little more vintage-inspired!
The first cabinet was a wall mounted bathroom cabinet which was supposed to go above a toilet. It can be purchased from Amazon here. I loved that it had drawers!
The Black Bathroom Cabinet
Measure each door and drawer and use the free silhouette software to design mockups of the design. I used permanent adhesive vinyl (Orcal 631 in gold and black) cut on my silhouette machine and adhered with grid transfer paper for the exact placement that I wanted. The black is adhered first and the gold is layered over the black. I was inspired by the black and gold art deco graphics from the old Singer Featherweight sewing machines. I’m pretty pleased how they turned out!
The White Bathroom/linen Cabinet
Next up is two old white linen cabinets used for fabric and pattern storage. I’ve had these for several years but I wasn’t a fan of the glass doors since I rarely kept the inside “pretty”. The first step was to make the glass more opaque, like the black cabinet, before I added vinyl. A fantastic product on Amazon which is basically a sheet of static cling was applied to the inside of the door using a squeegee and water. It was really easy!
For the black/gold details, I once again used (Orcal 631 in gold and black) cut on my silhouette machine and adhered with grid transfer paper for the exact placement that I wanted. The black adhered first and the gold was layered over the black. Here are some construction photos of the process.
I’m so glad I dressed up these cabinets! I’m thrilled how they turned out!
