More improvements to MY bathroom in my ongoing project to eliminate all the stainless steel handles,towel racks,and cabinets. This was a built in TP storage/dispenser area that really offended me so this “privy door” was my solution. Reclaimed redwood matched the redwood walls pretty well and finish is BLO and shellac.

Looks really like a nice idea to meAndy. It is a big improvement Anytime you can eliminate stainless or any other metal and replace it with wood.

Thanks guys. Not sure I understand Grizz’s comment about the “finished wood look on the outside”????

Looks like a great place to spend some “quality time” with the sunday paper. Nice work.
