Short and sweet this week as we get closer to wrapping up the series on how we added a $15,000 bathroom to our house for under $4k:
- How to: DIY Foam Insulation, plumbing, electrical, framing, & demolition
- How to: arched doorways & rustic wood floors
- How to: Build a custom corner storage cabinet
- How to: Custom tile shower with shampoo nook and decorative tile border
Our house is full of custom built-in shelving units, which were pretty popular back in the day. We wanted to update the house with a more modern look, but maintain some of the old style to help tie everything together. Lack of bathroom storage is something that really bothers me– when you go into a bathroom that has toothbrushes and personal care products crammed onto every counter top surface it just looks, well, cluttered and dirty. We now keep the bulk of our items inside the cabinet, which saves on cleaning time and makes the bathroom so much more relaxing to walk into.
For a novice woodworker (like myself) this DIY corner cupboard should be a weekend project (need to leave time for paint to dry overnight), and cost about $100.
