DIY Bathroom Makeover

96K
I decided to give our main bathroom a makeover for the 2016 Fall One Room Challenge. This builder-basic bathroom was large and very bright, but was lacking in personality.

I started by removing the laminate countertop & sink and removing the vanity doors.

I build two drawers out of 1/2" plywood for each of the two outer cabinets and added a 3/4" plywood shelf. I used 1/2" and 3/4" plywood (and my kreg jig) to make new shaker style doors for the middle cabinet.

The new countertop is made of four 2x6 pieces of pine attached together with pocket holes, sanded smooth and stained with Minwax special walnut and grey stain. 4 coats of Varathane Triple Thick water based poly top the whole thing off.

I cut 1/4" plywood into 6" planks and installed them on the walls as shiplap.

    You did a fantastic job. Now I have to dig my Kreg jig out and use it. The doors and counter are amazing
