If I had more time, money, and we were going to be staying in this house for a while, I'd consider it. But I don't want to do all that work (I wouldn't even have the time) for a project like that.

I agree. Go to your home improvement center. Grab a vanity and top you can afford and install with faucet. Its the easiest fix. Best of all it will hide alot of the wall there.

Go to your steel supply and have them cut yo a piece of 1/4 inch steel plate. Chisel a recess across 3 studs(33 1/2) wide and anchor to studs flush.

Did anyone ask if the bracket was still tight to the wall ? Often the angled portion of the bracket will angle just a little bit more from use as a staircase or workbench.
Where was I, Oh yeah, test fit your plate then remove it after outlining the bracket fastener holes. Bring it to your bench and use drill press, or if not so equipped hand drill to drill holes and tap for 1/4 20 bolts. Install bracket when fitting drywall, use a few pieces of 1/4 inch all thread to locate the penetrations through the rock. Perfect time to add a GFI on a dedicated circuit as required by code, maybe redo the leaky tailpiece on the outlet of the sink where it has rusted over time. After finishing, use hex bolts, fender washers, flat washers and lockwshers for the bracket. .
BUT DO CHECK TO SEE IF MAYBE THE BRACKET WAS TWEAKED, as afterall, it is February and don't know about you but I am at my winter post holiday need to get moving weight.
