Pretty bathroom

Materials: MALM chest 3 drawers / ASKER suspension rail, containers, hooks, shelf, kitchen roll holder

Description: My bathroom furniture was too small, I wanted better organisation.

On top of washbasin I fixed ASKER ( found in IKEA’s kitchen)

Then I cut the back and the top of a MALM chest

    What is the difference between this cheap laminated particle board and the cheap laminated particle board that came with my condo 20 years ago?

    That drawer is going to be dead in a year – it is not meant for wet spaces and will seriously be damaged.

      The drawer is not in a wet space, but in a high humidity area. An adequate bathroom exhaust fan is a must in any bathroom and will take care of any moisture problems. It’s the Malm top, now vanity countertop that will get wet. I’d recommend several coats of marine quality polyurethane to protect it.

      Btw. I love the shower curtain message.

      I filled the space between MALM and basin with silicone joint to avoid infiltration of water. The top is wiped immediatly if water is on.

      The floor is also laminated, and I have no problem…

      The bathroom has an exhaust fan & the door is always lightly open


      my old cupboard was in the same material (Anonymous Apr 9, 10.11)

      Thanks Ellie :-)
