Bathroom Vanity Suggestion

3 posts in this topic

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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
