Change Number One, Remodeling the Bathroom Vanity


Periodically, Tom makes changes to our house to make it more friendly for his scooter and power chair.

The first change he made this summmer was to his bathroom.

This is the vanity that was in his bathroom at the beginning of the summer.  It is now in our basement just in case we want it again.


He used the same washbasin surface but made a new vanity cabinet.  Now he can clean up facing the vanity.  Before he had to work from a sideways position.

He bought the wood at Menards, the big box hardware a couple blocks away after he had designed what he wanted.  A friend brought the materials to our house in his pickup truck.

Here is Tom cutting boards at the saw set up in our garage.


Here he is blowing off the sawdust after he was finished for the day.


Here is one of the finished boards, sanded and varnished.


His friend helped him install the new vanity.


And I sewed up a pair of curtains.

Looks good and I bet it is much easier to use! Well done Tom! :)
