Advice for a Bathroom Vanity Renovation?

Good Questions

Q: I was wondering if Apartment Therapy readers might help me with a dilemma — what should we do with the vanity in the bathroom we're renovating? We like the lines but aren't sure how to update it to match our planned "spa-like" bathroom…

Sent by Diana… We're doing white fixtures and we're leaning towards 2" white hex tiles on the floor with dark grout. The current color of the vanity matches the trim around the door and window. We'd like to get a single-handle faucet and a clean-lined, rectangular self-rimming sink.

We've got to decide between keeping the vanity and replacing the countertop with something, or replacing the whole thing. If we keep it, should we paint it, strip/re-stain it, leave it as is? We've basically hit a roadblock and would love to hear some suggestions! Budget is somewhere around $1,300 for the whole vanity including sink and faucet. Thanks!
