CLEVELAND — As we wrap up DIY week, we got some expert advice on making over a bathroom cabinet without spending a ton of money.
We wanted to tackle a bathroom cabinet makeover using chalk paint -- and got some help from local professionals.
No doubt we’re in good hands with Kim and Sue, owners of Metheny Weir in Rocky River. Like all of us, they are learning to navigate through a pandemic, social distancing of course.
Their store is closed for now, but you can still shop online and have supplies shipped to your home, or you can pick it up, like we did.
If you follow the directions they give you, it’s a relatively simple process. This is certainly a project you can handle.
We chose to go with oxford navy chalk paint by Annie Sloan. You can see how we did everything by watching the video at the top of this story.
Chalk paint is water based, and a type of paint that can be used on furniture and more to create a chalky appearance. You don’t need to prime using it.
The type of project Dave and his wife, Lindsay, used would cost you anywhere between $50 and $135 dollars depending on which supplies you go with.
