Bathroom Vanity DIY

224,991 Views
We were doing our upstairs bathroom over. It was the ugliest bathroom I had ever seen. We went to Lowes and ordered one of their vanities, which was $500 and fell apart as it came out of the box. So we thought about how all the things of the past were made so well... and "boy, they don't make things like they used to!" And Voila!! An idea was born. Went to the local Lion's Club donation center and found this cabinet with the perfect measurements for the space we had.
Even had a hole in the back for the pipes!
We bought some cabinet paint in "old time white" and got to work. We sanded some of the divets out and got rid of a few deep scratches and started painting.
The cabinet took the paint well....
Then we distressed it using sandpaper until it had the look we wanted...
Had the plumber come and hook it all up. We ordered a vessel sink from Overstock.com from Krauss (highly recommend Krauss... their quality is amazing). Now we have the prettiest vanity with a touch of old-world sturdiness!! We love it!!!!

      That's awful to pay so much for junk. You got such a much better result with this piece and no one else will have one just like it. It looks so clean and neat
