It started with the basin….yeah yeah so I am slow. So what. The basin sat in the half-finished lounge mocking me with a hole at the bottom and people asking me whether it was a fancy flower pot with a drain hole. Jeez. So I built a stand for it, then it needed a shelf for its taps. Lastly one of those bathroom cupbard things with a mirror ( the latter something best not studied beyond a certain age).

Now my wife wants to move into the bathroom.

I really like the combination of wood and metal. The mirrored cabinet is great. Was it already something that opened or did you start from a fan shroud or something?

Hello there David. It was a painted shroud originally which was going to be some form of lamp but my imagination tripped on that one.

Glatex 8 as a finish. It is a boat-builders twin-pack varnish. Timber is Afromosia.
