Renovating Bathroom - turning a dresser into a Vanity
Hello guys!!! Just after a bit of advice. I have a SMALL bathroom (2.3x2.3) QLDer type home here in Australia. I'm wanting to stick with the "heritage" style, so I've decided to make the vanity out of an old cupboard. I've been searching for the "right one" and over here where I live, these are limited (without paying hundreds of dollars - a lot of people nowadays do not just throw out, but try to sell). I've located 2 so far, ready to be stripped back etc (so may have varnished or repainted - not sure yet - what would you require to make it WATERPROOF as such?). Just wanting some advice on the Plumbing side of things too - how easy to connect the basin, drain & water pipes - I'll be having a mixer tap attached to the cupboard - so pipes will need to go through the top of cupboard), and opinions on which looks better (see photos). With the larger cupboard I am looking at removing the end with the 2 doors (not the cutlery door end) - it has damage on the outer section, I'm looking at perhaps making these OPEN SHELVES - with a bit of fanciness added (decorative trims?). I've purchased this Vanity Basin also - while I love the look of the Basin sitting on top of cupboard, does it suit? or is it to large, and should I perhaps have in set into the top? SO MANY QUESTIONS ha ha ha. Any ideas are welcome!!! I've come to rely on this site for all of my renovations & restoring. LOVE IT!!!
