Clash of the styles!!! :roll: I wonder how long it will take for what’s left of that cabinet to fall apart due to water spilt out of the sink and steam from the shower.

"Creative" people. Making vintage radios rarer and more collectible, one abomination at a time. :evil:

What the hell is wrong with people? :shock: It shoulda been the toilet base. At least then when you see it you don't have to go far when you vomit.

Why is it that these hideous abominations are always up for sale? When was the last time you've ever seen somebody actually posting an ad looking for one?

How did he access the pipes while installing??

This guy probably made a large access hole in the wall in the next room and hid it behind the headboard of his bed.
