Project: Bath Vanity.

Last weekend was a two-day DIY project with the “master” bathroom in my condo. I love my Roost Horn Mirror and Restoration Hardware double wall light fisture. At this point, all I needed was some extra storage to stash lotions and potions. My lovely handyman Greg and I checked out Home Depot, Lowe’s, and several online distributors and vendors. With a small corner space and limited movability of the wall pipes, we new we had to find a sink with a drain that was around 10 inches from the wall. The budget has to also be realistic at around $300.

After one trip to Lowes, a $285 Allen & Roth bow front wood cabinet with white ceramic sink top set was in the back of my Toyota Highlander. Out came the worn and white builder grade (circa 1999) pedestal sink and in went the perfect new cabinet and top.

Once we opened up the wall, we found that some pipes had to be removed and others had to be cut to be able to line up the sink drain pipe with the U-shaped pipe running from the wall (I can’t believe I just forgot what that pipe is called!!  It’ll come to me…).

It deserved a quick trip for more materials from the local Home Depot but after a 7 hour project from out with old to in with the new, we were finally ready to run some water.
