Vanity for Retro 1920s Bathroom

I was hoping you all could help me with a decision. I'm almost done with my first do-it-yourself bathroom makeover. I'm trying to create a 1920s to 30s looking bathroom. I added faux crown molding, stripped, and stained the wood trim a dark brown, and painted the walls a dark sage green.

I got a great deal on a claw foot tub at a salvage auction. The floor is a small circular white tile with a black design. All I need now is the bathroom vanity and I can't decide. I'm on a budget so I'm getting the bath vanity from Home Living at


I need a double sink vanity, but I was also thinking of getting two single sinks. If anyone has any suggestions or tips I'd be happy to hear them. Thank you all in advance. I have no design style so this will really help.

Have you thought about two pedestal sinks instead. It would be more fitting for your 30's theme. Or refit a large deco piece of furniture like a dresser to "drop" the sinks in instead. It could even be a piece with a neglected finish that you sand very well and then paint with black Marine paint, for a durable finish. The room sounds great!
