Vanity Space

Here is a photo of a modification I made for our vanity. We never seemed to have enough shelving space. So I created a shelving unit which attaches to the existing medicine cabinet. Our Flagstaff is the 829FKSS model. It looks like original equipment. If you would like the plans, contact me.

If I was going to do that much work, I would have gone ahead and turned the bathroom upright. Showering would be much easier standing.

Just kidding.

Nice job on the mod. Looks "oem".

Wink The solution!

I figured someone would ask. Here is the mod for the other side of the bath under the window. I added trays here with a rubberized bottom. When we get ready to move we simply sit the items in these trays until we get to our next stop. Nothing has ever fallen out. We also replaced the stand-alone chair with this swivel recliner. It is actually smaller than the original chair. Now if I could only figure out how to rotate pictures!

Chillbilly, they are nice mods! Seriously! I particularly like the tray with the sticky backing.

As for rotating the images, rotate them using your computer before you upload them. If you are using windows, you should be able to just go to the folder where they are located, right click one of them and choose to rotate left or rotate right. If you are using an apple product I can't help you.
Good luck.

Hi Chillbilly.
Excellent job!
I am curious about the materials you used.
Can you discuss the construction a bit?
Many thanks,

Bill

Just used some clear pine 1 x 4 planks, but the pieces and glued and screwed them together. I finished the end result to match the existing cabinet. Then I used screws and nuts to fasten them to the side of the existing cabinet. It can be taken out as easily as unbolting four screws, leaving only four small holes in the existing cabinet. The shelves under the window are actually two serving trays I found at Big Lots, which just fit tightly. I put rubberized placemats under them to keep them intact and additional rubberized placemats in the bottoms to keep everything in place. Nothing has ever spilled out. I was camped over a weekend earlier, and happened upon another Flagstaff like mine. I showed them the modification and he contracted me to make him one. So, you may see another one pop up on this board. It really gives a lot more storage when setup.

Great mods, but they are hard on the neck.

Nice mod around the medicine cabinet. I asked my DH to make a shelf underneath the cabinet so I can remove the unneeded toothbrush holder and soap dish attached to the wall. I figure the shelf would hide the screw holes from these two items. I like your idea better. He's a whiz in the workshop, so I'm sure he can build this in no time. He's already built a free-standing TP holder, magazine rack, table for the living room, and a new 3-tier spice rack to replace the 2-tier one that came with the TT. Thanks for the photos.
