Well to make a long story short I started out just replacing an old tub in the bathroom which turned into a whole remodel!! I’m talking new toilet, floor, lighting and heck while I was at it lets knock down a wall and make some room for a double vanity. After all in a few years three teenage girls will be fighting for sink space!!! Honestly I just didn’t want to spend $800 - $1,000 on a double vanity so I decided to take matters into my own hands. This was my first time building any type of functional furniture. I made a ton of mistakes but I also learned many valuable lessons. I really took my time....about 3 weeks...ok, maybe 4. Building this vanity was like cutting 101 for me. #1 lesson I learned, MAKE SURE YOUR CUTS ARE STRAIGHT!!! I also learned the value in test cuts and having a lot of patience and extra wood on hand. Anyone can do this, just be willing to put the time and effort in…and do lots of research.
