After playing around this is what my plan is. I'm going to just put together something in your photo. I have black 1 1/2" (what I think) is pvc from H.D. Hope this stuff is okay to use? Here are some shots. I have to get a new trap piece to replace the glued 1 1/2" to 1 1/4" reducer, but other than that I think I'm good to go. Also I think I need to get an adapter for the last elbow with a lock nut to the size of my drain pipe right? Thanks again for all your guys help.

black pipe is abs make sure you have the correct glue and the glue is runny so if you do not want black glue on your hands or floor and it looks like you are on the right track

Personally, i'd stick the vanity top on there and see how much room if any there is for a p-trap if you roughed that drain in above the drawers. If there's room for it, that would be the better option.
