This short instructable shows how I tried to transform an ugly IKEA-like over-the-toilet furniture, into a something that my wife actually likes...

Step 1: How it was before...

Just to show how ugly that over-the-toilet cabinet was. Look on the right of the picture : It has legs, and no doors, so everybody who goes to the toilet can see our mess ;-)
&nbsp;Thanks for you comment. I do not live in this apartment anymore, but I hope the next occupant likes it too.
I was really hoping your instructable would explain how to properly hang a cabinet. Sadly, you haven't even provided as much information as you would get out of the instructions included with the new cabinet! I was hoping to hang a cabinet in my bathroom, but I'm looking for ways to make sure it's straight and well-anchored. It would be nice if you could update this with some steps explaining how to hang the cabinet.
I am not sure you get the point : I did not bought any new cabinet. I reuse the existing one, by transforming it. I just wanted to show how I put the iron corners.<br/><br/>To put things straight, there is one tool : a Level !! Most of them have at least two bubbles, to check horizontality or verticality. <br/><br/>To be sure it is well-anchored, you must check if the cabinet you are trying to hang up is designed for. Kitchen Units are designed so screws through the back of the cabinet will effectively hold. Here, the back is a thin wood plate that would never hold anything. I asked technicians in Home Depot : Their advise was to use their <em>EZ anchor</em> stuff, plastic screws to anchor in the wall, in which you put your classical iron screws. This is the easiest way. Otherwise, if you want a very strong anchor, you might look for the stoods into the wall, and exploit them. As this is something I do not master at all, I wont post something like that.<br/><br/>I'll try to add my procedure on how I put the screws...<br/>
