I recently upgraded our ensuite bathroom with new tiles, a new mirror and plantation shutters which I made with Australian cedar. It all looked OK except for the white shaving cabinet that looked well out of place. I decided to cover it with some left over pieces of cedar. It turned out OK, only 10mm thick finger jointed surround with a mitered facade finished with wipe on poly.
Now to finishing off the bar (no comment necessary Karson, LOL). That’s after I paint the gutters, finish off a friend’s present. That’s retired life for you.

Why am I getting jumped upon. When did I ever say anything sarcastic to you. Well other than that time, and that other time.

OK I guess I deserve it.

Nice job on the cabinet. Now don’t stay in the bar too long.
