    Use white paint to apply a wash of color. Or, paint white and distress.

    Oh, there are so many things you can do. Here are a few ideas. You could cover the wood with a lighter color. Calk it first then, Prime it with aroma free Kilz primer paint, and paint it a lighter color such as sand color, put seashells on picture frames, and add other seaside type decor to it using seaside colors of the ocean or beach. Buy other matching decor in towels, window decor, and lamp shades or vanity lights. Hope this helps

    Remove the scallopped edge at the top, whitewash the backing, distress paint the frame and shelves In pale blue or green depending upon your bathroom colours...or you could paint the colour on the interior with the outside being done in an off white.

    Prime back wall so knots don’t bleed through paint with a calming beach glass paint and whitewash the shelving and front.

    Thanks Lynn, I'm not sure what beach glass paint is, I'm in UK, but I will google it.
