Do-It-Yourselfing (DIY) has become extremely popular in the last few years. With websites such as Pinterest, people’s craftiness and wanting to be hands on has skyrocketed. This is extremely true when it comes down to refurbishing old furniture to give it a new purpose and look. This is where the saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”! Whether it is something you already had in your home or something you picked up at a garage sale or on the side of the road somewhere furniture and other items are the perfect things to re-do and create unique bathroom furniture.
Here are some of the coolest designs we have found on the internet. They are not only unique but extremely functional as well!
1. Before and After:
Here we have a vintage suitcase turned into medicine cabinet. With the addition of lace and some towel hooks this suitcase makes the perfect wall accessory by simply screwing it into the wall at the desired height.
2. Dresser: Before and After
Here an old dresser has been turned into a vanity. By simply tracing the sink and cutting out a hole big enough for it to sit in and cutting a piece out of the back for the pipes this project isn’t all that hard. A little finagling (removal, face gluing, and some carpentry) depending on what you want done with the drawers may have to be done but the finished product is well worth it.
This ladder once re-finished would make a perfect towel hanger. Just screw it to the wall at a slight angle to allow for towels to be slung over the rungs and presto, a nice useful towel holder.
