I had an ugly bathroom I wanted to remodel with a beachy cottage theme. This is when we started tearing out my bathroom- here are the before cabinets in my bathroom. ugly green laminate counter with basic sink.
Saw these cabinets on the curb set out for trash, and thought I could work with them.
Cool curved glass sink and new faucet.
added some bronze hardware I had on hand to match the sink and cabinets were complete.

I wanted a bathroom redo and found some trashed cabinets on the curb that were the right length and height, but were truly trashed. I decided to refurbish them and see what they could be turned into. I figured if I messed up, they'd just end up back where I found them, no harm- no foul. I used all free stuff with exception of sink and faucet. I even used old paint I had on hand to paint multiple layers and then sand back down.

I love my new bath.
