I’m so flattered by all the positive feedback we’ve received from D*S readers about our lovely home-made sink vanity. We originally purchased this dilapidated, yet functional dresser at an antique mall for $30. We then purchased a vessel-style sink from Lowe’s and a union was formed. I stripped, sanded and painted the new dresser while my husband cut out a hole in the top. We just both guess at how deep we wanted it to sit in the dresser, but I’m happy with the height. While the top two rows of drawers are not functional b/c of plumbing, but bottom one does offer a bit more storage for our small bathroom. The paint was Behr “Fired Earth” (or another brand that I can’t remember now) and then we put a ton of poly on the top to seal it since it would after all, get wet. I thought about punching it up a bit with some fancy hardware from anthropologie, but I think the subdued silver goes with the rest of our home nicely.
