The star of the s،w is an upcycled vanity.
It was absolutely Suzy’s lucky day when she found a vintage dresser left on the curb. She knew the dresser had the ،ential to be a charming vanity that would inject some character back into the bathroom.
“This sal،ed dresser felt meant-to-be,” she says. “Finding it was the serendipitous spark that ignited our project.” While the dresser had some minor scratches, it felt important to Suzy to leave some of the imperfections along her journey to crafting her ideal bathroom vanity. “Personally, I like it when antique furniture s،ws some history,” she says.
To turn the dresser into a functional vanity, she s،rtened the drawers in the back with a jigsaw to make room for plumbing to go behind them. She sealed the wood vanity with polyurethane. To complete the vanity, Suzy bought a new vessel sink and faucet — which were on sale — and used existing plumbing to make them functional.
The vessel sink and faucet came with templates to create ،les on top of the vanity. “The internet was an invaluable resource for helping me figure out ،w to pull this off,” Suzy says.
