DIY Bathroom Vanities

Dresser Do-Over By Shabby Girl on Pinterest.  Follow Style Estate on Pinterest.

An outdated bedroom dresser found new life in this youthful bathroom. A fresh coat of cheery pink paint spiffs the structure up. Although the top drawers give up storage function to the plumbing, behind the cabinet doors is space for beauty supplies and towels. Removing the dresser’s bottom drawer offers room to add decorative storage baskets.


Asymmetrical Placement By placing the sink to one side, instead of the middle, this dresser-style vanity provides space for two people to stand and groom simultaneously. The vintage cottage aesthetic of the vanity base blends seamlessly with the rest of the bath’s charming details, such as the hexagon tile flooring and beaded-board wainscoting.


Beauty and Glam This stylish vanity cabinet makes the entire powder room sparkle with a hint of old Hollywood glamour. The mirror-paneled vintage chest was converted into a vanity, outfitted with vintage-style fixtures, and paired with an etched mirror to complete the dramatic statement.

 

Small and Sweet New and salvaged materials come together to create this adorable, one-of-a-kind vanity. A vanity with a small frame was needed to conserve space in this tiny half bath. The base is topped off with glass mosaic tile and a glass basin. The simple open bottom offers a single shelf that can easily hold towels, a jar of soaps, and a large decorative seashell.

Open Vanity Storage A thoughtfully designed open vanity can provide both an airy look and storage. This design has drawers tucked beneath the open shelf, which proves to be a perfect perch for towel-filled baskets.


Narrow bathrooms present a challenge for vanities. This bathroom makes the most out of what could be a cramped space by utilizing a narrow console table as a stand-in vanity. Even though the vanity is finished with a dark stain, its open shelving prevents it from looking too heavy in the small area.


 A purchased cabinet base and a birch plywood countertop were combined to create a customized vanity to fit a tiny bathroom space. The countertop’s curved shape allows the door to open into the room while squeezing in a bit of more storage. A vessel sink and a cylindrical faucet fit the small space and modernize the look.

 

Make the most of a small space with a storage-filled vanity. This small vanity features plenty of closed storage space for towels and other bathroom necessities. Keeping countertop accessories to a minimum creates the illusion of more counter space.

 

Vanities have the potential to be a bathroom focal point. Here, a sturdy open vanity features thick wooden legs and an equally oversize porcelain sink. When a vanity’s design commands such a presence, scale back the rest of the elements in the bathroom so the overall design of the room isn?t overpowering.

 

This little powder room features plenty of European-inspired style. Rather than settling on stock cabinetry, which would have been too large for the space, or for a storage-less pedestal sink, the homeowner scoured retailers and found this weathered wooden table that resembles an expensive European antique and topped it with a vessel sink
