Bathroom Vanity Makeover

I'm in the middle of a bathroom makeover, and I just finished my vanity. I made new doors and drawer fronts using 1/2" plywood and decorative trim, and then made the countertop for under $35 using cedar fence pickets. Next up, I'll be working on the walls, and getting rid of (or covering up) the 30+ year old berry wallpaper.

    Looks great. Good luck on the wallpaper. We just took down some 30 year old paper--what a job! Please post your hints on wallpaper. We had to use a steamer.

    A great looking re-do, Kristi. Looking at what you did with the new doors has given me an AHA for my kitchen cabinet doors that are desperate for an upgrade. Thank you for sharing the great pix. Also, I had to remove years of wallpaper from a bedroom.
