General Instructions

Work on a clean level surface with good straight boards. Predrill and countersink your screws. Measure and mark out your joints before fastening. Use glue and 2 1/2″ screws unless otherwise directed. Check for square after each step.


Step 1

Spacer. Fasten the spacer to the legs, as shown above. Use the 2 1/2″ screws and glue.

Step 2

Side Apron. Fasten the side apron to the spacers, as shown above.

Step 3

Top Support. Fasten the top support, as shown above. Notice the front and back of the support will have a different position on the legs. This is important, because you want your back apron to sit flush with the backs of the legs, and then the back of the wall behind the vanity. You can also choose to secure the vanity to the wall through this back apron.

Step 4

Front and Back Aprons. Fasten the front and back aprons in place.

Step 5

I was searching for a discount bathroom vanity until I saw this project. It is really great and perfect for a farmhouse bathroom design! I will definitely try to make it even if I don't have so much talent on doing this but I hope that it will finally look almost the same.

This vanity is beautiful. What would need to be done to the plans to add shelves at the bottom for baskets?

Hi Ana! I absolutely love your website! We've built shelves, beds, and now this vanity. How exactly did you fasten the top of the vanity to the legs without screws showing? I just wasn't sure how to complete it and on the instructions it just says "fasten" THanks! I'll post pictures when I finish it!

I love this vanity-- however, when I clicked on the pic of the single bowl vanity, it showed these plans for a double bowl. Where are the plans for the single? I am a starter and need everything listed out for me- lol. I can't modify. Thanks!

how are you attaching the apron boards to the spacers? With screws from the front or with a Kreg jig?
