Now that the conservatory bathroom vanity is finished we started working on closing in the access area behind the shower.
The conservatory vanity has a rustic style due to the vintage sheathing we removed from the house during the renovation.
I wanted to extend the look to the barrier in front of the opening by the toilet.
First, Charlie ripped the longest board to face the 4-1/2-inch edge of the shower. Since the board was not quite long enough we added another short piece at the bottom.
After clearing out the space and collecting the necessary tools, using our Kreg jig we made 2 equal-sized frames which are ultimately going to hold shelving. Since the shelves were going wall-to-wall we drilled the pocket-screw holes on the outside of the side pieces.
The tops and bottoms of the frames were about half an inch smaller than the opening to allow for easy positioning.
We stacked the boxes on top of each other then slid a 2 by 4 base under them.
The boxes went all the way up to the ceiling creating a faux wall.
The next challenge is to cover the back and insert shelves.
Do you have a robe hook near your tub or shower?
