Looking for the cheapest bathroom and yet natural furniture for your bathroom, we came up with this idea.
For this hack you will need two Ivar side units and a wooden counter top or even a plywood one, and a couple of screws.
As I am not very confident in cutting the wood with my miserable machine … I simply went to a DIY store and asked for 2 plywood cut to my dimensions. (Yes this is the main advantage of this system you can have your own dimensions).
I fixed the Ivar sides on the wall. Then fix the countertop on them, simply with 2 screw on each side (screwed from the countertop to the Ivar sides). As my screws were visible on the countertop and because it worth to reinforce the structure, I added a second countertop (same dimensions as the previous).
I like the idea of blending wood and paint on the countertop. So I painted it with an oil based paint (the countertop on the top and left the one underneath rough). I fixed the 2 countertops together (screwed from the below and this time the screw were invisible). Hope you like it.
