New vanity
« on: June 12, 2017, 09:52 AM »
My big project for this summer is to remodel my upstairs bathroom. Part of that includes building a new vanity.

Here are a couple of project pics for the work in progress. 264341-0264343-1

Good luck.

I have the same thing to do but with a small bathroom in my basement, soon.

I want a small floating vanity with solid-surface. Have to redo the entire ceramic tiles, shower and a closet.

Progress continues...

I'm down to finishing now.... So I have parts everywhere...

Drawer boxes, doors drawer fronts and painting the cabinet carcasses.

It's kind of sad in way when you know you aren't going to to drag all of the toys out to cut things.

This project is part of a total bathroom remodel. As such the flooring had to be replaced.  That was my weekend project. Vinyl click lock stuff.

(for some reason, pics from my phone turn sideways on here, and I'm not sure how to correct them.)

Looks good!

What material are you using for the drawer boxes and how thick is it?  Will you apply a finish to them?


Thanks,

The smaller drawer boxes are 1/2 poplar with 1/2" plywood bottoms.through domino joints at the corners.  The large drawer box is 3/4" poplar with 1/2" plywood bottoms. The large drawer is roughly 22" wide so it needed to be more robust.

All have been coated with min wax polyeurathane.

More progress...

First thing I had to do was make a template for my counter top out of melamie.  The adventures in getting a custom vanity top through the big box stores has been interesting.  I had to send them an exact drawing.  So in order to get what I wanted I had to make a template for the top.  I purchased a piece of melamie board and here it is.

It has a vessel sink.  The manufacture Home Depot uses wanted a model number of the sink.  Why I don't know.  They need to cut two holes. 

Anyhow, this will be used temporarily while I wait on the solid surface top.

I also was able to install the drawer boxes in the cabinet boxes.

265765-4

I can say this, I have a new found respect for the people who paint things and paint them well.  This black cabinet paint I bought at Lowes has been a royal PITA.  It has just been awful to work with. 

Still have to paint the drawer faces and doors.
