I printed off the plans and we bought the material for the cabinet and then had to build it at my parents house. They had the tools to cut the wood and the space in their garage for us to work on it and stain it. Carter loved watching this thing be built. Anytime we were working on it, he had a chair pulled up, just watching us.
It's definitely not something Greg and I could have done ourselves. My parents helped out a lot!
It was the middle of summer when we were working on this thing and it was HOT, but I was so excited to get it done.
It took several days to do.
I was so excited to get this hung up in our new bathroom. It has a full length mirror on the front, which I love.
Since we built it, we could put the shelves where we wanted them. I brought a couple items over to my parents when we were making it so I could have all the shelves be exactly where I wanted them. I love having the top two being the perfect height for nail polish.
Just like the Shanty 2 Chic tutorial, I put two handles up for my hair dryer and flat iron.
I also glued a magnet strip to the inside door for bobby pins.
I absolutely love our bathroom cabinet and love that we were able to make it. I looked online for cabinets the same size as the one we made and they were outrageously expensive. Now that things are starting to calm down, I'm making a little list of other things I want to make for our house.
