When we moved into our home, we had a very skinny bathroom upstairs. Every time the door opened, it banged into the bathroom, and your knees could knock the sink when you sat on the toilet. We decided to expand the bathroom, making the adjoining office a bit smaller.
The “office,” was previously an old, second-floor kitchen. When we moved in, there was still a big stove outlet and a set of cabinets with a kitchen sink. Now, these cabinets were u-g-l-y, and we just stuffed junk in them — hair accessories in one cupboard, old Yellow Pages in a drawer, a bunch of unused frames under the sink — so it wasn’t too heart-breaking to decide to pull them out and move the wall over the resultant foot-and-a-half. But then we still had the dilemma of what to do for a new bathroom cabinet.
Working with a budget, we couldn’t really afford to pay thousands for a nice big cabinet with a modern counter-top. So I decided to re-work those fugly cabinets. My husband was sceptical, but I knew they had a future.
