Inspiration: Giving added dimension to your bathroom sink

Inspiration: Giving added dimension to your bathroom sink

We spotted this neat idea from the Spring 2007 "Befor & After" special publication from Better Homes and Gardens. Many of you renters might have a similar bathroom setup. Extra large mirror with a single sink in the middle. Pretty flat and boring. But as you can see in the photo, they were able to add some architectural interest without having to take anything down or have anything custom built...

They purchased two pre-made wall cabinets that traditionally would be mounted, but instead, simply left them sitting on the counter, flanking either side of the sink. Note that the bottom cabinets match the color of the cabinets on top, which makes one cohesive look. In the middle of the mirror over the sink, they attached an over-sized frame. We saw this trick recently on a TV makeover show, and all they used was double stick velcro. This gives plenty of grip, but is also removable. (It probably would be wise to use a lightweight frame.) The effect gives the look of built in cabinets, without the build. Has anyone tried this idea? Does anyone have any other non-permanent but high impact suggestions for bathrooms? Please share in the comments!
