I know this isn’t a woodworking project, per say, but I thought some of you might like to check it out. I finish this remodel last summer. I made the cabinet doors, the mirror, the molding around the sink, the outlet covers, and laid the tile.

Did you use paint on the doors? How did you get it to look so smooth? HVLP sprayer?

If you made it, sounds like woodworking to me. Is that MDF?

It’s a good thing my wife doesn’t visit this site, or I’d be hearing “Why don’t you do that in OUR bathrooms?”

Nice job!

The cabinets go with the dog I see. Very nice.

Thanks everyone,

BassBully, that is semi-gloss latex paint and I just lightly sanded it with 220 grit sandpaper, followed by 0000 steel wool.

Thomas, the door frames are pine and the panels are birch ply bead board. MDF would have been cheaper and easier. But, I wanted some practice building door frames with solid wood.

Charlie, wife projects are good for getting more tools with less begging.

Cabinet doors(wood); moulding(wood); and outlet covers(wood)...I’d agree…it’s woodworking and very good woodworking, too. Nice job.

”wife projects are good for getting more tools with less begging” – Iclashley

When it comes right down to it, usually our wives won’t balk at our tool purchases, if they can see where they help the household economy. Projects like this will build the case for more tools, and if we can do this kind of stuff with our tools, it’s a win-win.

Nice work!
