No Medicine Cabinets?

tkhooperJuly 2, 2008

Is it possible to cut out the wallboard where the bathroom mirrors are and build in a medicine cabinet framed with 2x4's and then reattach the mirror with the added support of say 3/8 inch plywood backing and molding to make it look good. Attached with some reasonable heavy duty hinges? Or would it be to heavy and collapse the wall.

Or do you know of a better solution that would create medicine cabinets for me in both bathrooms. The under sink cabinet just isn't enough.

Your home sounds like mine. I can fit certain size cosmetic bottles in my medicine cabinet, but most won't fit. I just bought a medicine cabinet pulled from an old home. Works just as fine. I would opt for that instead of building one. It will save you money. You can find them through Craigslist or good wills.
