Well, I went there with a purpose one afternoon. We were renovating the lower level to our chalet which included a new bathroom and I needed a vanity. I wanted something solid, but knew I could work magic with it if I had to.
And I had to.
It was a solid oak cabinet but pretty boring. And it had a hole in the side (as you can see), but that part was going against the wall, so it was not a bother.
Abracadabra . . . . . . . .
Trim. That's what made this baby pop. Oh, and paint with glaze too. That kind of helped.
I had scoured Houzz for some inspiration ideas. I came across a vanity with the lovely trim on the side. That's where I got the idea to beef up the cabinet. It is simply attached with glue and brad nails. To highlight the trim, I added glaze after painting. I think it really makes it pop.
I also gave it some new "feet". I wrapped the bottom with baseboard that I cut out in the front to make it kind of fancy.
I love this bathroom. I was going for the clean, in the woods, relaxed by the lake kind of feel. I also built the shelf, the bench, and the doggie decor (missing from pic). Will share on another post I get to in about 6 months! Ugh.
Have a great day,
