|RE-PURPOSED| Bar Mirror for Bathroom?

28 Feb


I’m trying to figure out what to do with the gaping hole I’ve left in one side of my bathroom for some sort of shelving/cabinet/make-up station.   I think this bar mirror shelf system with lighting would be PERFECT.

The problem area.

The sewer pipe runs long the outside of the basement wall.  I figured I could reclaim some of this space lost before with the wall built 10 inches away from the wall.  So here we are with a large empty space.

The gaping hole in question.

The original plan…

Was to put shelves or a cabinet in there.  I found two of the doors (leaning in the photo above) at ReStore and figured out a way to use them in the space.  See the original drawing below.

New, bar inspired plan.

Shelving on the left for display type pretty things.  a cabinet with a door jam light switch that will turn on when open.   Top shelf at “make-up height” with lights on top and either side (prob LED).  Mirror back to whole top shelf.  2 shelves below for misc bathroom necessities.  Wood doors.

Maybe I can used these for lights?

    That is a GENIUS idea Kate. I love seeing inspiration come from unexpected places. Like bars 🙂

      Thanks Faith. BTW. Thanks for having a wonderful successful blog, it got me to stop thinking about doing it and just do it.
