Here's how I made my own concrete vanity top for my bathroom. This is a very stylish yet rugged look for a bathroom vanity. It looks super nice and modern! Check out how I got the look.


Tools and Materials

  • wood
  • a bowl
  • concrete
  • wood base for the vanity

Create a Mold

Create a Mold

First, make yourself a mold.

Concrete Counter Mold

I used a large salad bowl as the basin, and 40mm PVC pipes as the trap and faucet. Before pouring in the concrete, make sure to spray the whole mold.

Pour the Concrete

Then it's time to pour the concrete! Pour it into the mold, but make sure to vibrate the concrete real well in order to get rid of air bubbles in the concrete. You don't want any spaces in the concrete.

Let Dry

Let Dry

Let the concrete fully dry in the mold. Take the mold out after 48 hours, and clean the edges to avoid breaking the corners.

    Well done!! That’s amazing! I wonder if a stainless steel bowl could be used?

      It will definitely work! My plastic salad bowl end up breaking afterwards, so yes stainless will be better

    I feel foolish but I'm not understanding how to create the bowl part without the whole counter top being as thick/deep as the bowl. Did you pour a first layer to thickness for counter top let it dry then fill the rest of the mold up around the bowl?

      When you look at the two-mold set-up, there is one mold on the bottom that is significantly wider. Presumably the bowl is placed strategically into the larger mold. Then the deep mold is positioned so that it aligns on two edges with the wider mold and allows for the depth of the sink. That may be the reason for the wood flange in the vanity:to hide the underneath projection of the sink.
