Molger frame for two

Materials: 2 Molger leg frames, Pragel countertop in black, 2 Hollviken sinks, 2 Price Pfister faucets (from Lowe’s- no longer avaiable)screws, drill, L brackets, saw,

Description: We had a teeny tiny bathroom in a teeny tiny house. We decided the one thing we really didnt want to compromise on was the bathroom and with lots and lots of sketches we found a way to have a double sink vanity.


We used the Molger leg frames. Even these were too large in depth. Since the frame comes in pieces it was easy to cut them down to the depth we needed. We then fastened two of the frames together by using one large piece of pragel countertop cut to size. We then cut out two holes for the Hollviken sinks and dropped them in.

Unexpectedly, this project was a cinch since the plumbing was exposed and there was plenty of room to work.

The result: a double vanity sink in a teeny tiny bathroom.

    Hi Anonymous….
    Yes, you can definitely cut the width of the molger down. It literally comes in pieces so you could cut it down and then fasten it back together without changing the overall look of the frame.

    We put all of our stuff in an ikea cabinet that is hanging above the toilet in the 3rd picture. We actually used a kitchen cabinet since the dimensions were just right and it offered a little bit more storage. We took the cabinet from about 12 inches above the toilet all the way to the ceiling which provided plenty of storage.

    That bathroom is amazing! Oh how I miss having a big bathroom! That’s one thing you can’t find in college but who says the bathroom you have can’t be decked out in Ikea? Love it!

    Very nice work! Just wondering… where do you put all your STUFF now that there are no drawers/shelves/etc…?

    edit: Nevermind, I just saw on your site that you sold this apartment over a year ago. :)

    Just curious but do you think you can cut down the length as well and make it work? we have a sink area of 30-32 inches and the smallest one they make is 39 inches. I LOVE this idea its so hard to find good ideas for tiny baths ours is a total of 5×3 for toilet and sink! yikes!

  12. Very nice! I only wish I had such a big bathroom… sigh… (yup, there are bathrooms that are a _lot_ tinier than that)
