We are redoing our master bathroom - we ripped out a soffit, a closet, the old vanity, and we ripped off the HORRID old wallpaper, put up 5' tall beadboard, designed our own trim, designed and built some heavy-duty floating shelves (see pic below) and decided we wanted an open-concept vanity, too. I fell in love with these rectangle porcelain white sinks and with all the white beadboard, and soon-to-be dark walnut stain hardwood floors in there, I thought the vanity should be dark brown stain too. The plumbing isn't installed yet, but you get the idea.
I used the farmhouse vanity plans to build the frame of the vanity, but i had to design the shelves on my own - I chose to do spa-style slatted shelves - they whole thing keeps the bathroom very open looking and not heavy and closed off. we LOVE it! :) Can't wait to get the plumbing done! (the pipes will be hidden below, by the way, by being boxed around)
Sorry for the unfinished parts of the bathroom in the pics - it's still a work in progress.
Thats beautiful! I love how that turned out! Your bathroom is looking great!
We hope it will turn out great, thank you! :)
This looks AMAZING! I wish I would have known what I know now before we built our house 2 years ago. I love our master bath, but we could have saved thousands...and I love this open concept with the raised sinks. You did a great job! It will be perfect when it's all done. :-)
That looks great! As someone who also did a version of the Farmhouse Vanity sealed with three coats of poly, I want to share my experience. We have a good amount of water spot stains and toothpaste "dots". I plan to re-seal it with more coats to fully give it water-protection. If yours is still looking good, it couldn't hurt to add a few more coats!
Thanks for the advice - our plumbing isn't finished yet and the sinks aren'et actually sealed into place yet, so I can definitely still take them off and add another few coats of poly! Thanks for the advice!
Thank you!! What a compliment :)
You might think about using Spar Varnish in this application - after all it is what they use on wood boats!
Where do you get that??
Bravo on staining all those slats! It turned out awesome...and I love the sinks.
What a great job. LOVE your choice of sinks!
Would you mind sharing where you bought your sinks from?
We got the sinks on Ebay!!
Hi there I am wondering how you did the slats-any tips? thanks!
Thanks so much!! You've inspired me to do my first project!!! Love the sinks AND the orchids :D
OH! and in order to get the spacing between each slat, i put an already cut 1x2 in between each one before i nailed the next one in - that way they are all the same width apart and just the perfect space in between! :) lemme know how it goes!
thanks so much!!!!! now I'm on the hunt for great sinks like yours!!!
these are our sinks:

I have a few questions for you.
Here are the answers to you questions:
I LOVE this and am looking to do something similar for my own bathroom. I am not a fan of exposed plumbing though and you said you were going to box it in. Do you have an updated photo with this done? And any info on how you did it?
I will post it as soon as I have done it! LOL The bathroom stuff is on hold for a short while and we are making due with how it is right now... but hopefully I'll have it done REALLY soon and the I'll definitely post it :)
I have uploaded a picture of the FINAL FINISHED vanity! you can see it at our blog:
I didn't want to create a WordPress account to comment on your blog, but I have to tell you that it looks great! And I'm SO GLAD you found General Finishes (I also get mine at Woodcraft, and just LOVE that store!). The whole GF brand is amazing, from their wood stains/dyes/sealers to the conditioners and prep products. If you can't tell, we share a fave :-p

HI there, I did a very similar project in our guest bathroom. I used two coffee tables anchored together. My questions are: Did you anchor your vanity to the wall? If so, how? Also, I used a shallac spray to seal it, but I'm wondering if it's enough to keep it water proofed. Any suggestions?
I did a very similar project for my guest bath. I used two coffee tables anchored on top of each other to reach the desired height. My question is, I used a shallac spray to seal the wood, but I am now wondering if that will be enough to water proof and seal the vanity? Also, to be on the safe side, I'm thinking I also need to anchor the vanity to the wall. Did you do this? If so, any suggestions on how to do it?
I love your vanity and just might do it for our master bath!
Thank you so much for the great inspiration!
What you have posted here looks great, but I can't see the finished project on your blog - is the blog still active?
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
