I needed a vanity for the bathroom of the log house. I wanted it to be unique, but also didn't want it to be too big. I was unsure which way I wanted to go with it, then suddenly I had a plumber lined up, and needed it stat! I cut all the pieces and put about half of it together one evening, then finished it the next day while the plumber was working on the rest of the bathroom. I put a piece of plexiglas on the top and on the shelf to make it practical.
I love vessel sinks, but I didn't want to spend a large amount of money on the tall taps that are used with them. I built the vanity with a step shelf at the back to make the tap higher. (I saw this done on somebody's blog but then couldn't find it again or I would link to it.) There is no point getting a good deal on a sink if you have to pay way too much for the tap.
There is a crawl space under the cabin so the plumber put a straight pipe down through the floor and put the trap under the floor, making the lower shelf more usable.
Don't the logs looks great! I do love this vanity, this is why I do all this hard work, so that I have total control of the decor. I know I should have dressed it up with towels and props, but I couldn't wait to share!
