1 CUT MITRES
Cut out the corner of the front legs using a mitre saw at 15-degrees off square on both ends.
Measure one inch from the front face of the front legs.
3 CUT ON LINE
Draw a line at 90-degrees from your one-inch mark then cut on that line.
4 ATTACH FRONT AND BACK
Use wood glue and 2 ½-inch screws to attach the front and back legs together.
5 ATTACH LEGS
Attach the top to the legs. Lay the ladder on its back to help with assembly of the parts.
6 ADD TRIM
Add the trim to shelf sides, front and back using 1 ¼-inch screws.
7 MEASURE SHELF HEIGHT
Measure the back of the legs from the bottom of the back leg to the top of where you will place the shelf. The back of each shelf will be flush with the back legs. The bottom shelf will be 5½ inches from the bottom of the back leg to the top of the shelf. The next shelf will be 19½ inches from the bottom of the back leg to the top of the shelf. The third shelf will be 33½ inches from the bottom of the back leg to the top of the shelf. The top shelf will be 47½ inches from the bottom of the back leg to the top of the shelf.
8 SCREW ON SHELVES
Start with the bottom shelf, screwing through the legs into the side trim for the bottom shelf with 1 ¼-inch screws. Work your way up, and check all the shelves and back legs to make sure they're level.
And finally, paint your new bathroom shelves.
