We’ve all done it… you’re walking through some store and your wife says, “I really like this _, but it’s too big (or small).” Well, that’s how this project came to be. This is a “a little bit smaller” version of a $50 cabinet from Target (or Tar-shay).

Made primarily of 1/2” poplar with a 3/4” thick top. The wainscoating (bead board) door panels were cut from pre-painted stock from Lowes.

The unit hangs from 2 metal keyhole fitting hangers recessed into the 3/4” top.

One of those is on my honey-do list, too. Thanks for the photos. Yours turned out great!

Did you just lag/screw it into the studs? I have a minor thought about how much weight it could eventually have to hold (even wet towels really add up)....

Beautifully done!

Neil – This cabinet is small enough wet bath towles woudn’t fit. The 2 towels displayed in the picture are hand towels (decorative, at that). So 2 screws using drywall nylon fasteners was used to hang it.
