Handmade Vanity Reveal

I love my new bathroom sink. The upstairs bathroom sink, that is. I had this sink in the garage for a long time, but no vanity so I asked Michael, nephew – the furniture maker boy – to see if he could make a base for this sink. I LOVE the way it turned out. It’s SO SO BEAUTIFUL. And it has an old-fashioned feel to it, too. See what you think.
We had the sink top. We just didn’t have a base. I told Michael I would be happy if it just had the 4 legs to hold it up but he said it had to be something better than that. And here is what he did. It’s gorgeous.
Here is the sink top:
050 (800x600)
Michael not only added legs but added a board across the front and the sides to make it look more professional. As he would say, he didn’t want it to look like a “hack job”.
039 (600x800)
I bought the legs at Lowe’s.
037 (600x800)
Mike was a little concerned about the pipes showing, but I think it gives an old fashioned feel to the bathroom. I’m loving it.
044 (800x600)
046 (800x600)
And these flowers I bought at the Hartford Garden Show last year. I had it on the door and it fell and the little hook in the back broke off so I sat it on the vanity and it’s like a brand new item. Yay. I keep looking at it. It’s so pretty.
048 (600x800)
We’re getting a new header soon by Jamie of the Letter 4. I can’t wait!
Best wishes for Spring happiness…

  1. Mike is a terrific craftsman!

  2. It looks beautiful! I love all the white. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend!

  3. Just gorgeous. The pipes add vintage character to it. Lovely blog.

  4. This is a great post. Very creative. Would love for you to share on Simple & Sweet Fridays.
    Beautiful Vanity!


  5. Mike did a great job! A white bathroom looks cleaner to me than in any other color. And your flowers, while adding even more freshness, add the romantic flair that goes with the vanity. Beautiful!

  6. Love it--he did a great job! It looks like it has been there forever.


  7. wow, can I borrow you nephew? He sure does really good work. It looks really great, and I also like the pipes underneath. Love the flowers on the sink, and pop against the white background. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration, and nephews, at Sunday's Best!

  8. I need a sink like that! Where did you get it?

  9. Looks gorgeous!! Nicely done!! The pipes and everything being white, it looks so sophisticated! Thanks for linking up at Romance on a Dime!!

  10. Great, great job! I'm quite impressed!

  11. Wow. I love this. Maybe I'm out of it, but I've never seen the pipes painted like this and I really like it. Can you tell me where you got the sink top?

  12. You could always skirt the sink when you get tired of the pipes, and then fill baskets underneath for extra storage.


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
