Have you been hankering to update your bathroom, but scared of those hefty remodeling costs? Well, today is your lucky day as we have two different do-it-yourself vanities. One requires a trip to IKEA, some jigsaw skills and some plumbing knowledge while the other is a full on build-it-yourself vanity cabinet (featured on Apartment Therapy this summer).
From the blog Modern in MN, this vanity uses IKEA's PS Cabinet as storage, IKEA's NUMERAR oak butcherblock countertop for the counter and then an eBay faucet and Micro ceramic sink. If this vanity isn't your style, the techniques used here are the same that would be used to transform an antique dresser to a bathroom vanity. Full details are available here.
Matt at Rancho Rehab built this vanity from scratch. With a sink from eBay, legs from IKEA and faucet from Hansgrohe, Matt used birch plywood to construct the cabinet and doors. The beautiful finish for the wood was created using Minwax's Polyshades in Pecan, satin. Matt details his whole project on his blog along with a drawing with dimensions of all the wood that needs to be cut.
Have any of you built your own vanity in your bathroom? Any tips for other readers?
