I'm re-doing a bathroom. I plan to wainscot the walls of the bathroom,
using 5/8 wainscotting (made of pine or some such wood, I believe),
which I will paint. Now here's my idea: I was thinking of making the
sink vanity a "built in." That is, I would like to, essentially,
continue the wainscotting around the vanity carcasse, so that the
vanity ends up being basically continuous with the wall. (Obviously,
being a vanity, it will jut out from the wall.) The doors of the vanity
would be made of wainscotting too (backed by 1x2 members, or some such,
to keep the door together).
Anyhow, my concern with this idea is that the pine wainscotting will be
too soft and will dent too easily. This is our main bathroom, so it
gets a fair amount of traffic. But I like my built-in idea. Any
Thanks in advance.
