Added outlet in bathroom

Added another outlet on the rh side of the bathroom vanity for my electric razor, etc that never gets unplugged. Would show pictures, but it cannot be seen. There is less than 3" from the vanity to the wall which made it just a little challenging to install. Had to cut the hole from inside the vanity. Thank goodness the vanity side is only 3/6" plywood as I had to cut it with my pocket knife. Used an offset outlet box that I wired on my bench and inserted the box, tightened the attaching screws that holds the box to the wall, installed the face plate all by feel using a screwdriver tip in a 1/4" ratchet & socket. Tapped into the GFI outlet on the front of the vanity. Don't want to do that again. Total time: 2-1/2 hrs to do a 30 min. job. Getting slow in my old age. Oh, to make it a little more challenging, there is a sliding door that also uses that area so the outlet had to be all the way to the rear of the vanity.

I am going to do the same thing. I did add another outlet in the kitchen in the overhead cabinet between the stove hood and sink for the coffee maker. It went ok....!

Sounds like another fine modification! It's fun to see what everyone else does to make their units more accomodating to their personal needs and habits.

vanity

Just finished my bathroom vanity. It was small so I extended it.and prepped the countertop and installed granite tile and backspash. Made a little more room for the DW and made it look better. Next weekend is the granite for the kitchen counter and backspash.

I think I need to add one or two to the outside ! One outlet is just not enough !
I think one more on the living side P/S and one on the D/S will help .

Pictures would sure be nice, might have to copy your idea, but don't think I could gain much room.

Can't believe it, but DW says she doesn't need anymore storage space.
