so our abnormally small bathroom has left us without any reasonable options for a cabinet as wide and we would like. we need a fairly narrow depth. so i get to build it! (my preference all along)
a few things..
1. i’m thinking plywood carcass and poplar for the face frames and door / drawer fronts.
what sort of plywood? it IS going to be painted.
2. the finish. i’m going to paint the whole thing white. since it’s in a bathroom we want something resistant to water AND be easy to wipe down and clean. suggestions from you pros?
3. the top. it’s going to be either tiled with a drop in ceramic sink.
maybe painting it with the same paint as the cabinet will look odd though?... if it’s natural wood i’d probably go maple or red oak.. in which case it’d be stain and then have poly? i have good poly left over from doing my floors.
thanks for your help. trying to get stuff done before the baby is here!
