We are a tall family and it was time for taller vanities in the bathrooms! I decided to start with the kids' bathroom and built them a functional vanity with a built-in hamper making use of wasted space!
Time: 2 Days Cost: $150 Difficulty: Easy
The original vanity was made from skinny furring strips, 1/4" plywood. and 1/2" MDF. It had two doors, no shelf, and too much wasted space for my liking.
The new vanity is the same length and about 6" taller - it is 36" tall! I created four drawers, a shelf in the center cabinet, and added a laundry hamper. I also used the existing countertop since it was fairly new - I built it a few years ago!
I painted the vanity one shade darker than the walls. It is a light grey and makes the bathroom look much brighter!
