would this Rectangle sink and stand go together?


Hello everyone. First time homeowner. I was inspired by this DIY'er. She bought a stand and vessel sink and put it together.
http://jhalvorson.wordpress.com/2010...bathroom-sink/

I would like to try this myself.

My bathroom walls will be tan/beige

Sink - exact sink

Stand - I pant to keep the wheels off, cut leg to level. Paint this very dark modern brown.

The stand is about a inch bigger around the perimeter.

Do you think this will work?

I'm trying to acheieve somethign simular to this... but sink and top attached together.

Fairly nifty idea I think as long as you don't have to "hack and wack" the shelves to make the plumbing fit.

I like it!

Since the stand will get some water on it, and have to withstand more scrubbing than a standard wall, I would suggest doing some research on the paint. Either go to a real paint store (not a big box store) or over at our painting forum for recommendations on what will hold up the best.

I'd put a water resistant poly over the paint.

The tricky part will be making the channel hole for drain... plus getting legs level... but similar standards are around $250 or more so it is worth the effort

The drain piping will be below the top. All you need to do is cut a hole through the top for the tailpiece to go through. Put the sink on the top where you want it and trace the location on the top. If the sink drain hook up projects past the perimeter, hollow out the top with a router and a template.
