We recently finished our master bathroom remodel, and thanks to Ana's plans we saved a lot of money being able to build the vanity ourselves. We had a very tight budget for this semi-gut job, about $1500 for the entire bathroom.
We started by picking out exactly what we wanted and then tried to achieve that look with what we could afford. We found a very large antique bread bowl at an antique store and my wife immediately thought it would be a beautiful storage container for towels in our new bathroom. This began the search for the perfect vanity to fit the bread bowl. She found one in a magazine that retailed for about $1200. It was shortly after that I discovered Ana White and her amazing plans for building furniture. We slightly modified the plans for the Farmhouse Kitchen Island and it worked perfectly. I purchased the wood ($20) and vanity top ($100) at our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The build went fairly quickly and wasn't all that difficult. I really only struggled getting everything to fit "square" using all reclaimed wood. Including the hardware and faucet, the vanity only cost about $200.
We have been very happy with our newly remodeled master bathroom. I'm including a "before" picture. It was aweful!
Then there are three "in process" photos of the vanity. Notice my little helper in the background! Adah was very curious about my hammer and she kept stacking her blocks on the bottom shelf.
I'm also including a photo of the recessed cabinet. After Ana first started posting how much she loved her Kreg Jig, I asked for one for my birthday. The cabinet door with the frosted glass inserts was my first Kreg Jig project and it worked perfectly! I love working with the Kreg Jig. Thanks Ana!
