Vintage Cabinet to Sink

You never know where you might strike gold….found this piece of furniture in my friend Mary’s garage.  Her only stipulation was that I could not bring it back.  Sold!

You should have seen the original sink…a not very exciting oak stock cabinet that was put in quite a number of years ago.  The sink was small, but I did not want to pay for a double sink plumbing upgrade. Found this amazing wide sink at Ikea for a great price. Both kids can brush their teeth without hurting each other (most of the time).

The cabinet was sanded, painted an antique white and sealed with a water based polyurethane (so it won’t yellow).  The glass knobs and handles are from Target.

We obviously have a very understanding plumber who is never surprised by the projects I throw at him.  He did a great job installing everything.   A sugar and creamer pair found a home in the old cup and toothbrush holders that are permanently tiled to the wall. They keep our cotton balls and q-tips handy.

Will fill you in on the rest of this bathroom redo later….enjoy your day!
