We live in student housing. Not everything is pretty, trust me. I’m about to show you one of the ugliest-most embarrassing parts of our apartment. The bathroom… under the sink!
Yikes! I know! Oh, you want a close-up…
…here it is! Pipes and.. what’s that? A nasty hole in the wall? Sick.
I had a solution! All I can say now is, “Why didn’t I do this sooner!?” This faux sink cabinet adds structure and appeals to the eye. It pulls away easily for cleaning – and is a great place to hide things you don’t want seen (the toilet brush and plunger, perhaps?)! The wood cost less than $15 and I simply stained with Minwax Gray (my fav lately) and put a coat of Poly to protect.
I used 3 4″-wide furring strips, some free 1/4″ plywood and a 18″ long 2×2 scrap for the back brace and legs in front (the brace and legs keep the “cabinet” 1/2-inch off the ground. I attached each side frame together with pocket holes using a Kreg Jig, then attached the sides to the front with pocket holes, nailed the plywood on and screwed the legs and back brace on. Not much to it!
