Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Bathroom Revamp -

Gather your sup­plies

• 18mm lam­i­nated panel

• 30mm half-round mould­ing

•Door and drawer han­dles

You’ll also need Ham­mer; cir­cu­lar saw; PVA glue; drill; 38mm an­gled brack­ets; mitre saw; clear sil­i­cone; caulk­ing gun; 25mm nails; pli­ers; plas­tic spac­ers; tim­ber filler; sand­pa­per; matt clear var­nish; paint­brush

STEP 1 Re­move the cab­i­net doors and han­dles. Sup­port the van­ity top then care­fully re­move the side pan­els us­ing a ham­mer.

STEP 2 Use cir­cu­lar saw to cut pieces of lam­i­nated pan­els to match side pan­els. Glue and at­tach pan­els to van­ity us­ing an­gled brack­ets on the in­te­rior. STEP 3 Use mitre saw to cut mould­ing to fit cab­i­net doors. Ap­ply dabs of clear sil­i­cone to back and po­si­tion on door. Start from hinge side, leav­ing a gap so mould­ing won’t hit side panel. Nail in place, us­ing pli­ers to hold the nails.

STEP 4 Con­tinue fix­ing pieces of mould­ing to door us­ing a plas­tic spacer be­tween them.

STEP 5 Fill nail holes with tim­ber filler and sand smooth. Re­move dust and ap­ply 2 coats of clear var­nish.

STEP 6 Clad any drawer fronts in the same way. Reat­tach cab­i­net doors. Screw on new han­dles to doors and draw­ers.
