This bathroom remodel is from Tricia, who claims to be the only woman she knows who sleeps with a chop saw.
Tricia tells me, “I live in an old duck-hunting cabin which was gentrified, so I am in process of de-prissying it.
I hacked a Bekvam kitchen cart to make a vanity for the small sink in an unbelievably tiny bathroom.
I reduced the depth and cut new grooves for the angle brackets (shallow cut with a circular saw). Reduced the depths of the shelves, and halved the length of the centre slat in the top shelf to give room for the waste. for symmetry I put both wheels at the back. Two coats of polyurethane.
I also used Molger benches to make cupboard doors and a bath panel. The Molger benches can be made into practically anything. That bathroom is all walnut, teak and mahogany – I made the cupboard casings from mahogany with veneer inlay over the screw heads. the doors swivel on pins top and bottom rather than hinges.
