Bathroom Storage Cabinet

I built this cabinet to store magazines and diapers (towels when the time comes) in the small 1/2 bath.

The top was made with left over oak pieces from when I ripped out the carpet and 2x12 stairs and replaced with oak treads.

Estimated Cost
$20 (already had the treads)
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Type of Wood
oak top, pine 1x2s and 1x12s
Finish Used
jacobean stain on top, pale sandy beige paint with jacobean stain used as glaze on body.

I just created something similar. The way the top and body coordinate, and how the top cubbies are sized make this a stand-out.
Something similar would work for my classroom, too.

That's ingenious and it doesn't look that bad neither, I do think you should paint it in a nice color though and you could even match it with some unique vanities to fit in your bathroom.
