Wood Countertop For Our Tiny Bathroom for Less Than $20

The tiny bathroom at our mountain didn't have much space for a countertop, so it had to be custom made. We had some wood countertop left over from another project so we set out to create a countertop for our bathroom. You can see the finished countertop at the link below.
The first thing we did was make a template out of cardboard.
We used a jigsaw to cut out the front of the countertop, as well as the sink cut out.
Once the countertop was stained with MinWax Provincial Stain, we put several coats of MinWax Wipe On Poly to seal the top.
The sink was attached underneath the countertop with screws.

  • It looks beautiful. Are you sure poly is the way to go?? I'm afraid you will have some cracking issues down the road. I believe Waterlox would have been a much better sealant. Wood naturally expands and contracts, especially with water and moisture from a bathroom. The poly is not flexible and will stress when the wood does it's thing. Also, poly is not waterproof, or not meant for wet areas. Now if the bathroom never gets usage, other than guests washing their hands, it should be fine. But if it's a daily usage sink, then you may have issues. Sorry.
