Reclaimed Wood Bathroom Vanity

Pin It

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!

  2. Awesome! i like what you did with the tap. Now if I had carving knives I would say you should engrave fancy work on the legs and front panel.

  5. It really has a rustic old country look about it. I personally don't like it. I LOVE it. Beautiful job. Well done! Kudos!!!

  6. This is absolutely beautiful! Brilliant idea about the plexiglass. I've considered lots of polyacrylic, but this just makes it all so much easier.
    Georgeous! Needless to say I've started following you on Bloglovin'!
