Wood in the bathroom? Sure, if you do it right. It's a great way to add a warm, rustic tone to all that tile and glass and porcelain and other hard surfaces. This simple project from the Home Free blog uses affordable cedar 1x stock from the home center to create a simple parallel slat design that helps keep the moisture under control, while providing a comfortable, non-slippery surface to rest your freshly washed feet.
The design is simple, and built from a single 10' long 1x6. As long as you keep up with the finish, it'll last for years while looking sharp.
