Make a Bathroom Vanity from an Old Dresser


Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 172 Posts

Use an old dresser to make a vanity for your bathroom. I crackled this one and then also did some sanding to bring out the gold, as this was the basecoat. Then I stenciled over the top and poly coated it.

Wow! That is really nice, you did a great job! You must be handy and crafty, I would have never thought of that. Good idea to recycle and save money on a sink cabinet.

So pretty!!
Can you cover it with some kind of a water proofing varnish? It's too pretty to be splashed upon. And even if you don't splash, betcha someone else will.

Very pretty and such a great idea.I would have loved to see how the plumbing was done inside--- with all those drawers.

Several years ago a friend of mine also did this with a beautiful old walnut dresser and it looked great in her remodeled bathroom. I like yours better because it is light and suits a bathroom.

It is really lovely and you did a wonderful job. Did it take a long time to do?? Was the dresser expensive? How on earth did you do the plumbing around the drawers?

Very attractive, you did a nice job. In fact my bathroom is too small for a large sized vanity. I also wondered how you were able to do the plumbing job? The only way that I think that this could be done would be to disassemble three of the drawers by removing the actual drawers so the vanity would have a false front and by using wood screws so no one would try and open the drawers.

I would imagine she shortened the drawers so the plumbing would fit, or only uses the ones not affected by the plumbing, like the top left and bottom drawers. This is absolutely gorgeous! Great job!!!

Sorry, I am so late in getting back to this. My son actually cut out the drawer in the back to fit the plumbing ( the right one) but the front of the drawer was still usable so he put a divider there and I store my makeup in the small space to the front.

Also, I did use a polyurethane varnish on it. Make sure it is a water based varnish or it will yellow.
