Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


If your bathroom is small , you need to have an open air outlet. So try the DIY- MAke a live edge shelf that has space to accommodate your stuff. Get the sink that fits in and use the rest of the space.

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


Wow: 4 months later, but you got it.

How many attempts did you make before you figured out the secret?

For all the good this forum is, there are some points that are in DIRE need of work, posting photos is just one of them.

THANKS HAROLD

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


Sorry it took so long Ed. Must be that Pony Express that you guys use.
The system tries to save space by turning the greater dimension of a photo horizontally.
Make your photos wider than they are tall and the come out right every time (or upside down).

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


Wow, I don't know how I missed this thread. Good job on the vanity.
Short story. I found a similar piece to convert to a sink base for my cabin. I thought it was perfect. I had the sink template and jig saw ready to cut the top. I pulled out a drawer and saw that it was a Charles Limbert original piece. Same genre as Stickley and others back in the early '20's. I didn't breathe. Needless to say, I didn't cut the hole. I had bought it for half a song and dance at an antique dealer. He had two matching pieces, which I went back and bought for a full song and dance.

Chandler: Nice piece, Yes if it is original, DO NOT cut it up.

Sometimes you'll see a fake stamp in there on something similar, so be aware of possibly being robbed.

Try to get it authenticated by a reputable appraiser, and be positive.

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


Thanks, Ed. Although not a high class appraisal, I had another dealer, whom I trust, look at the pieces, and his mouth drooled. He was certain by the construction they were "originals". After 95 years they slide as I would expect from the showroom in 1922. He said I paid "chump change" for them, so I was pleased. Here's the other pieces.

Re: Bathroom vanity/converted desk.


Beautiful, and a pair of nightstands, and you have a complete bedroom set.

Dumb of the dealer to break them up.

But dumb people do dumb things.
