Hidden bathroom storage

Adapted Ana's full length mirror storage idea.  I needed to recess the cabinet into the stud cavity to save needed floor space.  Opened two cavities and made the interior the same length as the cheap $6 behind the door mirror.  Was able to just sit them on a ledger board and the shelves hold them from falling forward.

The cabinet looks wonderful and holds a TON of things.  Thanks Ana for the inspiration!

Estimated Cost
$200 because of buying a custom cut mirror for the outside, and adding expensive rope molding to match what is on the adjacent vanity.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
Chili pepper semi-gloss Aura paint by Benjamin Moore

I am wanting to build a thin or recessed cabinet for an incredibly small area in my bathroom and knew to go right to Ana White! The combination of these two projects is perfect and exactly what I was looking for! Now here’s to praying I can pull it off!! 😬
