grey day casa: medicine cabinet to niche

The original 1970’s medicine cabinet in the bathroom wasn’t doing much for us; we didn’t keep anything in it and it projected a good 2″ from the wall on the left side of the vanity.

1970s medicine cabinet redo

old 1970’s medicine cabinet… 🙁 who though of the shape for the top of that door? rough…

So my husband removed the old cabinet and built a new niche for me using some mdf, 1″x4″s and trim 🙂

wall niche bathroom diy

new niche; yes!!!

I’ve added some little metallic bowls from Target; I plan on using them to store q-tips, hair ties and bobby pins out of Vera’s reach

The existing outlet and switch plate were outdated so those were upgraded at the same time:

niche diy white

niche before paint; old outlet and switch plate

niche wall completed

new outlet and switch plate; complete with one of our trusty IKEA LJUSTER LED nightlights

We could have installed a GFCI outlet with built in nightlight like this; but yeah hindsight and all that…wall color is Benjamin Moore Fresh Mint
