We’ve been avoiding working on finishing the conservatory bathroom because we were afraid our skills weren’t good enough.
This past weekend we just started.
We’ve been saving old lumber from the demolition of part of the house to give us a rustic bathroom.
The Ikea sink had already been installed but needed trimming.
We started by carefully choosing some of the old lumber and giving it a light sanding.
Charlie carefully fit 2 pieces of lumber on the top on either side of the sink to make a full countertop.
Using a piece of vintage 1 by 8 we notched out the sink and applied it to the front of the sink support with pneumatic nails.
I had already purchased towels bars one of which we applied to the front of the vanity.
The next step is to rip some of the lumber in half so we can make a shelf on the bottom.
I’m definitely feeling braver about continuing with the project.
Are you willing to try something out of your wheelhouse? Do you get in over your head?
