DIY Rustic Bathroom Vanity

When we decided give a makeover to our power / guest bathroom I wasn’t even thinking that we should change the previous ugly white vanity, but after finishing painting the wall and placing the board and battens I knew we needed a new vanity.
I really like vessel sink vanities, so I did some research and found a couple of DIY projects I liked on Pinterest. I showed them to my husband and after telling him that I wanted a hybrid of about 3 vanities I liked he came up with the vanity that we (we as in he) built.

Let’s build a bathroom vanity:
My husband measured the dimension of the space we have and I researched standards for height width; we decided to build the vanity to be 35” high from the floor to the top of the vessel sink.
He made a couple of sketches, walked around, moaned and groaned and then went to the hardware store.

Make all the cut and assemble the vanity.  We were supposed to get a 4×4 for the legs but we didn’t because we don’t have a truck and the big orange store won’t cut a 4×4 (bummer); so 2×4’s were used as the legs instead. 
My husband used a brad gun to put fasten the pieces.    

Cut a hole for the trap.

Nail the top.

Fill the holes left by the nails.
Sand it

Stain the vanity. I used a combination of Kona and Dark Walnut stains.

Drill the holes for the sink and faucet. 

Hang the doors.

Attach the hardware.

Place the vanity, mount the sink, attach the faucet and connect the trap.

I hope you enjoy this project, if you make it please share a pic on my social media. I’d love to see how it comes out. See you soon, chau chau
