DIY River Rock Bathroom Counter and Vessel Sink

2 Materials
$150
4 Hours
Easy

This is our natural river rock counter for our rustic , nature like half bath off our family room. We wanted something “artist” and different because you can see the bathroom from the family and kitchen area as we have a very open house plan.

We painted the room a warm Med brown . The cabinet is beige gray and we have a green wreath and two Paintings with green ferns in them.

We made a wood tray 3 “ deep and painted it the exact color of the cabinet. We then installed the vessel sink and faucet. We added small multi colored pebbles and used a long stick to push them evenly under the sink so when you looked down into the sink through the glass all spaces were covered in pebbles. We then added large river rock stones and then more gravel stones on top to fill in any holes. We purchased a stone look a like soap dispenser and pushed it into the rocks. Lastly we added a rustic mirror and light to finish the look. We call it our rain forest bathroom because we also have shower doors in it that have glass that looks like rain on them.

    though the concept is a fun idea... i'd hate to have to clean that area. dust, hairs, etc. and where do you put stuff?

    i agree, if i were to do it i'd pour resin over it to a smooth top so it was usable and easier to clean.

      It is a 1/2 bath. So it is lightly used.

      You could use a swifter for dust.


      Not really sure why there would be hair in it but this is a rather high sink and and if someone brushed their hair it would mostly go to the floor.


      We have had it for a month now and it is very easy to clean. Our soup container is the only thing on the counter and that is nestled in the rocks.

      This is not for a family with small children or for a main bath. This is an occasional use quest 1/2 bath that is used only when you have a party or visitors.
