Bathroom Vanity Suggestion

Recommended Posts

Ok, after getting a sweet deal on a granite "returned" top, I now have to rebuild my vanity or build a new one. The new top is 4" shorter (56" top compared to 60" top) on the current vanity. I'm debating ripping out the old vanity and slicing 4" off the middle, pocket screw it back together a make 2 new middle drawers. Or just build a new vanity to the correct size I need and use the same drawers and hardware. I have about a weekend to pull this off so I figured with it might be easier to just build a new vanity during the week and slap it in on the weekend. Any thoughts or suggestions....

Make a new vanity. By the time you dink around trying to retrofit something that will not look right in the end, you could have a new vanity done.

There is a building supply outlet store in Eagan right off of hwy 55 that has ALOT of one of a kind vanities. You might be able to find one there that fits the size you need. They are open until 4pm weekdays and until 1 or 2 on saturdays.

They have some that are very high end vanities that are sold very cheap considering the quality. They also have everything else down to the very low end stuff that you can pick up for $40 or so.

You could probably pick something pretty nice up for under $200 and save yourself the time of building something. I have seen some solid cherry vanities that are 60+ inches that they sell for under $300, complete with dove tailing and reinforced drawers.

In my opinion building projects aren't the time to cut corners so I would not retro fit your old vanity. Why put a nice piece of granite on a patch job? The point of the granite is to make the vanity look better so I would make sure I was putting the granite on top of something that is worthy of having granite put on it in the first place whether you spend the time to building something nice or if you spend the money to buy something nice.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
