Wicker basket bathroom furniture

BYHOLMA baskets two sizes

The purpose was to create a bathroom cabinet.
The style needed to be nature/zen.

Steps followed:
1. Bought oak table and fixed two sinks on it (non Ikea Hack)
2. Then just created two planks at the right size. Made sure to support them somewhere in the middle with a vertical plank.
3. Fix a wooden beam to support the baskets position.
4. Just fill both planks with the BYHOLMA wicker baskets (used two versions)
5. On the water siphon, cut the wicker from the basket away such that it can pass.

The result is a oak tabletop with a wicker look front.
There is also some space behind the baskets to stuff some bathroom stock items.

    Great idea, I have just been waiting for it. I will use the same ‘hiding’ basket idea under a sink in place of the under cabinet we bought which doesn’t fit around the arriving pipes and water hoses and stopper lift mechanism. Thanks!

    Could you please post some more pics from different angles and better quality?
