Last week I shared with you our DIY rustic farmhouse table. Today, I have another DIY project to share. This time, the half bathroom vanity sink. This guest powder room is so tiny--our first thought was to go with a simple pedestal sink.
Then, we picked up this old dresser this summer at my favorite flea market the Third Sunday Market in Bloomington, IL.
|50 dolla holla.|
We paid fifty bucks for it. It was marked $65 so we did talk him down a few bucks. It was in rough shape. Grimy too.
It was the perfect size, and I loved the floral design on the little door. I'm not even a floral design kind of girl, but for some reason this seemed to be less grandma floral and more chic floral...idk
|Sanding and filling nail holes is not my favorite.|
Someone had beat this thing up, it had nail holes in the top, and scratches and dings everywhere. I filled the nail holes and sanded it down.
I applied few coats of Minwax Special Walnut, and a few coats of poly to shine it up and protect it.
The sweet drawer pulls were removed soaked in hot water to get the nasty sticky gunk off. Then I gave these babies a few coats of ORB to match the rest of the hardware in the house.
|Much better in ORB.|
We purchased a vessel sink and faucet off of Ebay. I did get a hell of a deal on this sink. I won the bid on Ebay for 80 bucks including the shipping. The sink alone retails for $400!
And the below photo shows the true room color. Sherwin Williams 7521 Dormer Brown.
