Wooden Bathroom Countertop

The cultured marble sink and vanity top in the guest bath was worn out after 23 years. We didn't want to spend a lot because we were faced with an expensive master bath remodel. I'd seen wooden kitchen counters and thought one might work in this room.
My husband joined two 2 x 12s.
We sanded, stained and cut the hole for the sink. The sink came with a template. The sink was $60.00.
We gave it 4 coats of Helmsman Spar Urethane in a satin finish.
It has held up so well. It's received a years worth of daily use and still looks great. I love it with the white vanity.

    So inspired- I am redoing my above the garage/flex space into a Indoor SheShed of sorts and it has a tiny lil sink and countertop and just of last night i scraped the previous owners textured spray paint over the laminate and found your redo while researching how to fix change or redo it. And I am not wanting to use or do faux granite etc bc i have all real granite in my house.

    You and your husband did a fantastic job and I am def inspired as well as showing my own hubs how you two did it.

    Tyou for being so detailed as well.

      Well, did you do it? Did you put in the wooden countertop in your bathroom?

      We would love to see a photo, if you used wood!

      I am dying to know, as I want to replace my current countertop in my master bath, with wood. Will watch for your reply. Thank you! 😊
