This past week or so I had some time off with Christmas and New Year and I was able to finish off my upstairs bathroom. The project overall wasn’t too bad (I installed the tub a month ago). Most difficult was the front access panel as I wasn’t sure how I wanted to do it but in the end I went with a solid panel and industrial Velcro. Surprisingly it really worked out well and provides easy access for down the road. The panels and all other moldings are made of poplar.
The vanity was a dark oak finish previously. With that I simply painted and distressed it a bit with the palm sander. After that I put on a faux finish with a couple coats of poly over top of that. The mirror above was just a standard mirror that I dressed up with some casing.
Best part was the cost of doing this job. The tub and faucet I got at a builders auction for $250.00, for both and the Corian vanity top for $195.00 at a surplus builders outlet. Other than that it wasn’t bad and definitely turned out pretty nicely.
