p trap problem


i was thinking that but vanity was pretty expensive and below the shelf is a storage drawer. i was think of using a 90 degrees out of wall drain and up to desired height but not sure if that will work? what do you think?

You will eat up the space you need to install the trap and it will be clog point. Also does not meet code.

Open the wall and move the tee for the trap arm up.
