Three DIY Bathroom Vanity Projects

Today I wanted to share with you Three DIY Bathroom Vanity Projects that we have completed in our current home. 

Creating your own unique bathroom vanity adds instant character and charm to your home and sets it apart from the rest. 


The first vanity that I want to share with you is the one we built in our guest bathroom in January of 2013.  We wanted to get rid of the dark wood builder’s grade vanity that came with our house.

We had some butcher block leftover from our kitchen renovation that we used for this bathroom vanity.  Cy cut down some newel posts for the legs of the vanity, and we added a shelf on the bottom for a basket.  You can see the complete tutorial by clicking on the link below.

Next up is the DIY bathroom vanity project in our master bathroom that we completed in 2012!  We found this antique dresser at a thrift store and turned it into a vanity.  Cy cut a hole in the top of the dresser for the sink.

The last DIY bathroom vanity project that I wanted to share is in our boys’ bathroom upstairs!  I absolutely LOVE these vanities!diy butcher block vanity

Cy built two of these for our four boys to share…two boys on one side and two on the other! :)

Unfortunately, I didn’t get pictures of the process when Cy built them in 2014.  #bloggerfail  

Sometimes Cy works so quickly, that I don’t have my camera ready in time to snap pics, but I love everything about this space.

DIY Shower Curtain for the boys’ bathroom 

We did a horizontal wall treatment on the walls and large gray rectangle tiles on the floor.  My favorite part of the bathroom, though, are the bright red vanities that Cy built from scratch.  Again, we used butcher block for the top of the vanity, but this time, we got it from Lumber Liquidators, and we left the color natural instead of staining it.  We just sealed the butcher block with a polyurethane to protect it.
