Vintage Sewing Box Turned Medicine Cabinet


An impromptu trip to an antique mall lead me to purchase a vintage sewing box. I have been searching for a perfect piece like this to transform into a medicine cabinet for the bathroom. Plus the existing compartments was an added bonus.

When you shop for an item that's an antique or vintage make sure everything is intact. That's why I always have my husband with me because he's my go to fix it guy and he can always tell me what can be salvaged or what's completely hopeless.

After I had sanded and distressed the piece I finished it off with clear furniture wax.
