Making use of wasted space.

I've never noticed the wasted space below my bath sink. So, I made cut an opening and made up a door. Ain't a perfect match for the finish but close enough. The camera flash makes it look worse than it really is.

Good job and it looks nice. That was a lot of wasted space and we don't want to be hauling that around.

Thanks all!!

I don't plan to put anything in there but TP, laundry detergent, drop-ins for the tanks and some junky towels (to clean the dogs). I'll keep an eye on the plumbing though.

Doing this mod only took a couple hours and less than $6 for the hinges. All scraps including the door panel which was left over from another project.

Nice job on finding and putting all that space to a good use. Great job on the door too!

Add a rear panel covering the pipes and you'll have the exact same arrangement that FR uses in other cabinets where something needs protection. FR uses screws driven at an angle into the wood strips attached to the wall to keep the panels in place.

Nah, thanks though. My FIL's 2015 Grey Wolf has panels like that in some of his cabinets. They take up way too much space for no reason. The panels are installed at such a way that they practically make the cabinet useless. He wants me to remove them and do something practical. One panel only had a single screw holding it in place. (We said nothing about it during the PDI though as we already discussed removing them)
