Reclaimed Wood Industrial Vanity

When we were brainstorming ideas for our master bathroom vanity, I wanted something a little out of the ordinary. Wish so much storage in our double medicine cabinet, we didn’t need a lot of concealed space for all the junk that usually gets tossed into a bathroom cabinet. In fact, that was one thing that bugged me the most in our last bathroom. We just had piles of stuff we couldn’t really reach, and no space for towels! So I came up with a simple idea for open storage that wouldn’t break the bank. The pipe materials cost $100, and we had the tongue-and-groove 2×6 boards in my dad’s barn, just screaming to get used! There’s a lot of space here too. At 72″ long and 26″ wide, the top has ample room to spread out toiletries and hair dryers and all that sort of thing. And at 31″ tall with two extra shelves, I plan to pack in our towels along with a basket or two for hair tools.

Here’s a quick breakdown of how we did it:

  1. Very nice! Your patience with the stain is admirable. I am always just so glad to have assembled something that I settle for whatever color I get on the first pass. My wife has way more patience than I do so I think I may start entrusting that to her. I almost asked if this was waterproof pipe but realized that if it’s for plumbing, it had better be. BTW my wife and I are going to do our best to replicate some of your kitchen cabinets this year.

  2. Killer your imagination and patience really paid off. Everything goes together (decoratively and mechanically) so very well. Is decoratively a real word?

  3. Looks great! I have an open vanity and a plastic p-trap that I didn’t want to see, so I spray painted all the plastic parts with rustoleum satin nickel spray paint and it looks a TON better! Not so glaringly white plastic. The spray paint sticks just fine without any kind of primer or anything.

    1. Thank you Jacob! They are Talevera (an artistic style, not a brand) sinks we found on vacation in Cozumel. But they are available in nearly every Mexican-imports store. I’ve seen them at my local garden center, and a few other places. You can simply google “Talavera sink” and dozens of shopping results show up!
