Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


I bought a dressing table, chair, and mirror at good will for $50 in an attempt to save a couple bucks on a finished vanity and also i wanted an odd width.
Long story short i donít like using the wood top for the top but i can be persuaded lol. Iíd like to show a pic but itís been a while and i forget how to get a pic attached. Thank you in advance!

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


A countertop fabricator can laminate that top, if it is flat, for a few bucks, or you can buy your own laminate ( formica) and try to do it yourself.

There is a tutorial here to read and learn how to include pictures, do a search and find it.

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


Two knots Iíd be glad to post pics of the vanity but i donít know how. Btw itís in place in the bathroom but i havenít finished painted or installed the bowl or fixtures yet. Also Iím thinking of using a 2 part epoxy coating for the top. The maker says its equivalent to 60 coats of varnish.

Cool

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


I donít know anything about epoxy coatings. But it sounds good as
far as the it being more durable.

We have a wood counter on a bathroom vanity, we have
so far - had to sand it down and re-coat the top two times, and
there is only the two of us. We have to be extra careful not to leave
water drops sitting on the counter.

We used water based poly cause itís white rift sawn oak and we
wanted to keep the top light. If regular poly was used Iím sure it would be more
durable, however it naturally tints the wood darker, and we didnít want that.


To post pics you have to go down to manage attachments, hit on that and
The rest is self explanatory. Looking forward to seeing your pics when the
bathroom is completed.

Looks good.

I sure wish the techs would fix that sideways picture problem, I get a kinked neck trying to look at those sideways pictures.

That is a great looking vanity. I love the French style legs.
Itís going to make a lovely and unique looking vanity when completed.
