In my previous project, I did the sink vanity and mentioned the medicine cabinet was coming up. It’s done and came out OK. You can’t see it but the doors a slightly twisted which means they don’t perfectly line up with the carcass. All practice for the coming kitchen cabinets! :)

The door frames and exterior trim is all made from some skid poplar. The main body is left over birch plywood and the shelf is pine. Quite the mixture!

The top matches the trim in the house (1930’s Bungalow) and the mirrors came from the beautiful med cabinet I removed (second pic). I just cut them down as they were raw single strength glass.

The doors are held closed by a couple of magnets that are set not to fully make contact. This way they are pulled closed but not held so tight that the doors comes apart after years of tugging on a grippy magnet.

We painted it to match the vanity and my last bathroom project will be a second vanity, or dresser, or whatever we want to call it. It will go to the right of the sink to match and then I think we call the bathroom done.

I’m coming for you, kitchen…

Great job on that beautiful medicine cabinet, looks really professional. Like the paint color, has a nice contrast with the whole bathroom.

Thanks Fish. I’m now in the process of building the other vanity which will match the one under the sink. Will post that when it’s done.
