About This Project

Pine, Walnut Plywood

This was my first project working start to finish with my husband, and let's just say that I prefer to build without him! This was a lot of trial and error, but I think in the end it turned out really well. We splurged on the plywood top, the sheet alone was $60, but since we used it on this, 3 benches, and our kitchen island, it was well worth the splurge!

We made the vessel sinks from metal bowls snagged at Target for $17 each. We drilled a hole using a hole-saw bit, and popped in an $8 drain kit from Lowe's. The faucets were given to us by my father-in-law, who's the manager of a plumbing company. I sewed a curtain that I stapled on the inside to hide the plumbing beneath the sinks. I love how it all looks now!

Required Skill Level:

Minwax stain in Dark Walnut followed by 3 coats poly
Estimated Cost: 
$60 for vanity, $50 for sinks


This is so great!! I love the bowls you used. Great job!!

I love this. I seriously think it is the prettiest bathroom vanity I have ever seen. I honestly want to demo my bathroom and build one just like it. Awesome job.

I really do love the vanity. For under $120, we have an awesome double sink option that looks perfect in our space. If you do decide to build one, I'd recommend more than 3 coats of poly. The toothpaste and water have left marks on the top :(

I will preface my comment by saying I'm not usually a fan of vessel sinks. That being said, this is GORGEOUS and completely makes me re-think my stance about those sinks. This is the first time I've ever seen someone make them appear rustic but sophisticated. The vanity, the faucets, the sink - beautifully built and put together. The way you pulled everything together is really stunning!

The road to success is always under construction.

This is beautiful! Thanks for posting- seems like something we could tackle, and I loooovvvvveeee the price tag, seeing as I've been eyeing those pottery barn vanities that have a similar look and feel and cost over 10X what this cost! Thanks again!

I love this! Especially the vessel sink out of bowls! How cool is that? This might be a dumb question, but did you have to seal the bowls or do anything special to them other than drilling a hole in them? ok, that probably is a dumb question. Any bowls Target sells should already be sealed well enough, right? I'm thinking I need to take a trip to Target! Oh, and the actual vanity is gorgeous too!
