My Bathroom Wall Cabinet Steal
One of the things I love, love, love about shopping online is the access I have to a choice of product. If you are a woman of a certain age, like me, you can remember the countless, unproductive hours you spent going from store to store in search of just the right end table, or shoes, or gift for the bride to be.
I've always tried to be a responsible shopper. You can blame that on my New England Yankee heritage and my equally responsible mom and dad, but as a result, the designer labels you'll find at my house are few and far between. With that said, I do like what I like, and when I get my mind set on something I am relentless until I find just what I want. That's why I love Internet shopping. It makes my search oh, so much easier.
Hubby and I have been working on a remodel of our first-floor powder room. I plan to share more about the remodeling in another post. Today I want to share my search for a powder room cabinet. We're in the final steps to finishing the project, purchasing the practical fixtures. To me, that means, storage, mirrors, and fixtures. In the remodel, I gave up all the storage I had in the powder room when I replaced the vanity with a pedestal sink. I like the clean lines of the new pedestal sink and the additional space it adds to the teeny, weeny room, but I decided I needed some kind of shelving over the toilet.
My search for shelving began. I started at Houzz.com. If you haven't checked out the Houzz site yet you are in for a treat. It is full of inspiring decorating pictures for any style you desire. I just typed "small bathroom storage ideas" on the search line and found pages and pages of options to consider. After several weeks of weighing my options, I settled on wanting a white cabinet with glass doors and simple architectural features.

I found a few options. This Cartwright Wall Mount Cabinet from Restoration Hardware (no longer available) was a perfect option. It fulfilled all of my requirements and had the added bonus of glass shelving inside the cabinet. I love glass shelving. At a price of $385.00 plus $21.00 in shipping, I wanted to try to do better.

When I laid out all the nails, screws and hardware I knew I had some work ahead of me.

The instructions said I would only need two screwdrivers to complete the assembly, so I was game to try. An hour and a half later I was finished.

I'm very happy with my cabinet. It's not just a deal. At $79.99 I'd call this cabinet a steal! If you like this bathroom steal you may also like this one for a wall mounted magazine rack.
