Habitat For Humanity ReStore: Pottery Barn Medicine Cabinet

For years I have driven by our local Habitat For Humanity building and had no clue it was a ReStore (picture a Goodwill that sells building and home improvement materials) and open to the public! So about a month ago the hubby and I finally stopped in to browse and we were pleasantly surprised, they have some really cool stuff; lighting fixtures, furniture, doors, sinks, toilets, appliances and so much more. While browsing I came across a medicine cabinet, but not just any medicine cabinet, it was the exact one I had been admiring online at Pottery Barn since the day we began escrow on the house. The medicine cabinet had a few scratches and was a bit dusty, but since I planned on refinishing it anyways I wasn't leaving without it, especially after seeing the Pottery Barn price tag on the back of it!

Retail price: $249-$299
we paid: $25.00
What I hope it will look like when I'm done refinishing it!

About Habitat For Humanity ReStore:

Habitat’s ReStore resale outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials to the public. While every ReStore outlet is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods like furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances.

ReStore resale outlets accept donated goods which are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities.

Promoting reuse and recycling. ReStore resale outlets provide an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream while providing funding for Habitat’s community improvement work.
