HANDY TIPS & TRICKS TO NOTE WHEN DOING THIS PROJECT:
- For a stronger, more durable finish use wood glue when joining panels.
- Always use the appropriate PPE when doing these projects.
- An electric tool such as a jigsaw, circular saw, drill etc. make the project very easy and saves you a lot of time and energy.
- Treat untreated timber with Powafix Enseal clear to prevent insect attack.
STEP 1 :
Gather all the necessary materials listed above to get started on this project.
Measure, mark and cut your panels. Make sure to sand the panels to a smooth finish in order to prevent those pesky splinters.
Use nails to put your panels together, thereafter strengthen them by adding screws.
Use the image below as a guide on how to place your panels.
Mount the two U-Shaped brackets to the bottom inner sides of the panels with the short screws.
Once the brackets have been applied to the panels, slide the curtain rail into the U-shape bracket.
Apply two coats of Powafix Teak Oil – this will help replenish your wood, will prevent it from drying and cracking and will give it a soft teak wood finish.
Use the Hilty wall screws to mount the towel hanger to the wall.
Now you can enjoy a beautifully organized bathroom!
