Talking Completed the bathroom light switch project

As most of you know, I have been getting opinions about this project, and thanks to everyone who gave input. The project came out very nice I think. I will say the staples area a pain to deal with! I had to get the staples out of the false wall inside the cabinet. That thin wall material makes it difficult to get the staples out without some slight damage to the finish. The good thing is that it is covered with trim anyway.

Note: When replacing the cabinet wall, I chose to use a few small wood screws in place of the 4000 tacks they used at FR! I also used a few small finish nails to replace the trim so that I will be able to get it off much easier next time should I decide to run other things behind the cabinet wall.

Note: In the third picture you can see the scratches that are on the cabinet wall as a result of removing the staples. This damage was all covered by the trim that went back on the edges when I was finished.

Other than the cabinet issues, the rest of the project went fine. I also like the fact that I can use the original light switch as an "adult" off switch so small kids can't turn the light off / on unless we have already turned the fixture on.
