Upgrade your toilet tank lid to maximize multi-tasking.
When working with cement-based products, always wear eye protection and waterproof gloves.
Place a piece of melamine down, and create a fence, larger than the existing toilet tank lid, with soft vinyl baseboard and hot glue.
Place the existing toilet tank lid inside of the fence (and top down). Then, mix the Mold Star 30 (or similar moldable silicone material) and pour onto the lid.
QUIK-Tip: Use hot glue and soft vinyl trim to seal any holes in the existing tank lid, before mixing the Mold Star 30.
Let the silicone cure overnight. Then, remove the existing toilet tank lid from the mold.
Prepare the arms by removing any electrical parts and grinding the mounting ends. Bolt the mounting ends to a 12” mending plate.
Place the hardware into the silicone mold. Then, mix the QUIKRETE Countertop Mix, according to the instructions on the back of the bag, and place into the mold.
Vibrate the mold.
QUIK-Tip: Use an orbital sander, without a pad, for this step.
Let cure for at least 18 hours.
Remove the newly formed lid from the mold, place on the toilet tank, and insert the modified lamp arms into the protruding hardware.
