Bathroom vanity redo...
Although I really liked our bathroom vanity (made from an old dresser) when we bought our house, it proved rather useless for storage because the humidity of the bathroom caused the drawers to swell and not open and close well. A few months ago, I found some old bead board cabinet doors on the side of the road, and they were just what we needed to make a new vanity. K made a frame out of 2 x 4's that were left over from other projects. We used the top from the old vanity so we didn't even have to cut a hole for the sink. We used extra plywood that we had for the shelves inside and the salvaged doors. The small shelf on the back was made with extra trim we had from our bedroom addition and barn wood we salvaged when my in-laws barn collapsed. The only thing we bought was some sponge brushes and poly-acrylic to seal the trim and vanity top. Total cost = approximately $10. I didn't even have to paint the salvaged doors because they were a perfect worn out white, I just cleaned them really well. What do you think of our vanity redo?
