Wow! $20 for a top at the flea market - I am jealous!!

Are you thinking something like this?

or

Shifting all the space to one side would make the shelves bigger, and possibly more useful, especially if you end up with a 6'5" dresser, but if the holes are already cut in your top for sinks/faucets that might not be an option.

...of course if the sink and faucet holes still need to be cut, and you are going to have them done by a pro, then shortening the counter wouldn't be much more.

What style are you aiming to achieve? I think adding the shelves would work best with a dresser with predominantly straight lines. A very curvy piece would be hard to make the added shelves "blend" but either a more contemporary or a simple shaker style if you prefer a more vintage/country look could work well.

What are your favorite bath towels/accessories and why?

posted by: phylhl on 12.07.2012 at 07:41 am in Bathrooms Forum

I'm so excited that our glass is going in next week and we will be able to use our shower/steam shower. We desperately need new towels. I like fluffy but absorbant.

I like the Thomas Obrien from Target but it's not absorbant enough. I have always liked Fieldcrest Royal (something) but it takes at least 10 washings to get all the fuzz out, and they're absorbant but not fluffy.

Any recommendations for some nice towels for our new master bath to put under the tree?

Also need some countertop accessories (for cotton balls, Q-tips, etc). Any suggestions? I was thinking clear or cut glass with polished nickel tops. Would love some suggestions for where to find.

Thanks!

Hope it works out.

I am not a cabinet maker but I have had to spread out stress on airplanes.

Im not sure plywood will solve the problem. Plywood plus more fasteners might. A metal insert that you screw into would probably work. If the plywood does not work try a hockeypuck size piece of aluminum or steel. cut a pocket for the hockey puck to fit, glue it in place then tap the screw into the metal. Problem is to much force on a screw going into particle board. Thats a lot of weight on one small screw. Its fixable dont give up the drawer!
