Standard Builder's Cabinet Upgrade.......with wallpaper!

I have been working like crazy on my bathroom re-do and I am most excited about this.....




I took a standard builder's bathroom cabinet....(these are actually my kitchen cabinets, but the bathroom ones look identical!)




I primed them with white primer and added a piece of beadboard wallpaper!



I was so nervous to do this.....what if I ruined perfectly good cabinets??? But, it was actually very easy to do!





I added another piece of wallpaper on the side of the cabinet.....then I painted it all a wonderful shade of black!




I'm still in the process of touching up and adding trim and a polyurethane sealer, but I just had to share a "sneak peek!"

What a wonderful idea! I would never have thought of that, in fact, I didn't know there was any such thing as beadboard wallpaper. Your cabinets are just beautiful!

Where did you find beadbord wallpaper! Do you think that would work on wallboard? Ideas are forming!

Nicole@Thrifty Decorating said...

You can purchase beadboard wallpaper at Lowe's. Is wallboard the same as drywall? If so, yes, it works. :)

Kim @ Too Much Time said...

Hey Nicole!
I think I am ready to try this on my own blah bathroom cabinets. Did you apply the paint with a roller? And what brand did you use? The finish looks awesome!
