PROJECT 2 CLAD THE VANITY
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.
