I showed you this little powder room HERE, I told you that overall I like this small bath but there were some issues I wanted to address.
The most important thing we have to do right now is change the lavatory, it got damage when the little bottle on the second shelf (picture below), fell and cracked the bowl.
In the meantime I need to fix what cause that problem, storage space. That's the principal problem because those shelves look good, but they don't hold that much.
My solution: To install three floating shelves.
You can check the following video for complete instructions or you can continue reading the story.
I measured, cut, and sanded the panels.
The panels and the 1x3 front boards were then stained.
For each shelf cover I used:
- 2 - 32" x ½" x 8" panels
- 1 - 32" x 1" x 3" board
For each shelf frame I used:
- 1 - 30" x 1" x 2"
- 2 - 5" x 1" x 2"
The 1x2 pieces of wood where nailed in between two panels like this:
Then, the 1x3 board was nailed to the front.
A look of the inside:
The shelves were then mounted onto the cleats on the wall.
Here, the three of them.
I found the perfect spot to display the one dollar find I got at the flea market, some decorative bottles, books, vases, towels...
and of course a basket for extra rolls of paper that I couldn't store in the room before.
I like both, my before and after picture, but what I like the most is having more storage space. :)
Our next project: installing the new toilet.
