dresser turned bathroom vanity

Submitted by leahrush4 on Fri, 10/07/2011 - 08:23

We looked high and low for a sturdy dresser we could convert to a vanity for our kid's bathroom. We could find nothing for under $500 so we decided to make it. We used solid hickory for the top and bottom and hickory vaneer for the rest. Only the middle drawers are useable, the side ones have a faux front to leave room for the sink plumbing behind. My husband also reinforced the bottom compartments by making them three separate compartments instead of one solid one. We ordered the sinks from overstock.com and the faucets are from Lowes.

My kids have been bugging for years for double sinks. I LOVE this. I was thinking along the same line but never got past the thinking part. This is GORGEOUS!

Wow, this is stunning! You did an awesome job! The only thing I can't figure out is how you were able to attach the plumbing? Did your husband have to crawl underneath to reach the pipes?
