Once we finished up all the cabinets for our kitchen, I was left with an extra sheet of PureBond plywood. And even though I was always planning on panting my cabinets, I had a touch of sadness that I was losing that beautiful grain. Because PureBond takes stain more beautifully than any other plywood, and better than pine boards. It’s so even and lovely and silky smooth. So I decided to use up the scraps by building a single sink double vanity for Charlie’s bathroom and stain it!
I started by searching Ana’s website for a vanity plan, and found a really great jumping off point with this plan. The problem was that it was for a single sink in cabinet size. But I was looking for something about five feet long that would incorporate a drawer and countertop area so my little miss will have lots of space for makeup and hair products and all those other girly things.
Oooh lala! Who wouldn’t love a drawer that big?
For scale, that’s your typical dishware organizer over there on the left. I wonder how many eyeshadows could be stuffed in there, 750? 😉 And that’s just the drawer. There’s also ample space inside the cabinet for soaps and shampoos and lots of toilet paper.
Oh, did you notice the kickplate? I used Ana’s clever idea to make the kickplate into a pull out step stool!
If you didn’t know it pulled out, you wouldn’t even be able to tell! Instead of another drawer pull, I just used the same cutout from Ana’s plan (that you also see on her Vintage Step Stool hiding under the drawer) to use as the grip.
I found the knobs at Hobby Lobby on one of their half off days.
Are you ready to learn how to build one of these for yourself for about $100?
