Cool Project - Medicine Cabinet

Another cool project recently left Frame of Reference - a custom built medicine cabinet. The problem started with a newly remodeled bathroom; new sink/countertop, new faucet, new light fixture, new tile backsplash, and a lousy $20 Home Depot medicine cabinet.

Black plastic frame, cheap stained plastic interior with cheesy shelves.

See? UGLY!
The real problem is that the homeowner just couldn't find anything to make her happy. The bathroom is cool and geometric, and premade cabinets just weren't working for her. So, we built one from scratch! A pale, ice blue lacquer outer frame with a cream lacquer fillet were used to construct the door.
The case was custom built from poplar, lacquered white inside with adjustable glass shelves. We backed the case with mirror and faced it with a lacquered frame that mimics the bamboo shelves hanging to the right of the medicine cabinet.
The end result? Harmony in the bathroom, and a truly custom look that delights the homeowner every morning! Problem solved!
