Medicine cabinet, vanity, storage cabinet, and towel racks for the bathroom remodel of a 50s vintage log cabin in Colorado. I gave up trying to match the color of the old, yellowed pine boards on the walls, but otherwise tried to remain true to the character of the place. The design of the towel racks was “inspired” by the existing toilet paper holder. And the mother of all toe kicks on the vanity cabinet was necessary to clear the base of the shower.

Knotty pine with wipe-on polyurethane finish. I used pocket screws on the various face frames and on the door to the medicine chest. Otherwise everything is just glued together.

Thanks, everybody. Gul’s comment hit the nail on the head. The room is only about 5×7 feet, so the biggest challenge was to cram everything in there and still have some space left over to brush your teeth.
