Replacing the vanity in your bathroom?

While you could buy a prefab one from your local home improvement store or pay a cabinet maker for a custom made one, why not DIY one from an old piece of furniture?

This can be a fun project that allows you to save money and add a unique touch to your bathroom. However, it’s important to make sure the piece of furniture is suitable for the bathroom environment and has proper water-resistant finishes.

To help inspire your DIY bathroom vanity project, we’ve put together some creative ideas found across the web. 

Some ideas include converting an old dresser into a double vanity with a vessel sink on top, using a vintage sewing machine table as a vanity base, or turning an old tabletop into a beautiful, functional vanity. 

Regardless of which option you choose, with a little creativity and elbow grease, you can have a one-of-a-kind bathroom vanity that adds character and charm to your space.
