Storage space can be scarce, especially in the bathroom. Toiletries have a way of multiplying and overtaking all the available surfaces. To address this concern, you could build a little cupboard from a ready to use pine shelve found in any home improvement store. You could start off with a simple and versatile style to make it easier.
Once you have the materials, you could easily follow a DIY assembly guide found on any online resource. Don’t put on the doors yet as we need to cover them with paint first. Check the fit of both door assemblies with the panels in place. After that, go over with the project again with 180-grit sandpaper in hand, just to make sure all is smooth. You could use a grey primer on the wood after final sanding, so that the semi-gloss latex paint would over more easily. Paint the inside of the cupboard and the back panel before attaching the panel with glue and pin nails. Door stiles and nails get painted now too, but mask the areas where the splines will go. These need to remain bare for the glue to grip. After tall the paint is thorough dry and the doors assembled, protect the project with a clear semi-gloss for a richer finish. Decorative knobs finish off the project. When hanging your cupboard, be sure to find at least one of the screws driven through each mounting strips, with thread-in wall anchors for the other screws. Once the cupboard is up, you can put your toiletries away and admire how easy it was to declatter your bathroom.
Hiding Screw heads
Wood screws offer strong, fast ways to join project parts, and they can be made virtually invisible too. Tapered wooden plugs make it happen. Typically, a ½” in diameter on their large ends, tapered wooden plugs can be bought from a store ready-made or cut in the shop using a drillpress attachment. Either way, you need to prepare two-part holes if you want to use plugs.
