Happy New Year! I remodeled my bathroom?!

Well Happy New years everyone, time for me to post another little undertaking again .

I'm going to give you a kind of summarized version here, you can read my full narrative diatribe here, on my blog.


First off, I junked my original medicine cabinet as its door had deformed from water exposure in the shower and would no longer shut.

I couldn't find another of the same model of Zenith Medicine cabinet, so I upgraded to this model:

This cabinet is a tiny bit narrower than the original, but its taller, and deeper than the old medicine cabinet and has one distinct advantage, the shelves are adjustable.

I've actually managed to collate all of the different medicine cabinet related items that I used to have tucked into nooks and crannies throughout the camper into the new cabinet with room for a few more left over.

To keep my cabinet from getting soaked like the old one, since they both have the same door construction, I took out my old and in need of replacing shower curtain and installed the new one, then cut the old one down to size to make a mini curtain to go across in front of the medicine cabinet.

Using a cheap curtain rod from Wal-Mart, I threaded the little curtain rod through the eyelets on the shower curtain I'd cut to fit and hung it in place.

It was a fairly tight fit getting the curtain rod to clear both the medicine cabinet door AND the light fixture. In addition, the curtain rod that supports the shower curtain that closes over the bathroom door was also in the same area. It took a couple tries to get it positioned so that everything would work smoothly.

But, now my medicine cabinet should stay nice and dry and the mirror will no longer suffer from hard water build up .

So, besides feeling poorly today, at least I did something productive .

So, have a Happy New Year everyone, tip one back for me, I'm going to go curl up under my blankets.
