Bathroom Cabinet Ideas-1Up-cycled Vanity
A garage sale find can become a unique and gorgeous bathroom vanity cabinet that defines the space and offers you tons of storage. Remember those large dressers with attached oval mirrors? A worn-out piece like this can be upgraded with a new mirror, fresh drawer handles, a granite top, and a vessel sink, and suddenly it’s no longer the neighbor’s old dresser but a striking vanity that gives your bathroom vintage charm.
Various types of furniture – cabinets, sideboards, dressers – can be re-purposed as vanities. In fact, this is a trending look and manufacturers are designing mass produced vanities in the style of freestanding cabinets. If you enjoy scouring flea markets, auctions, and yard sales for diamonds in the rough, consider looking for a piece of furniture that can be turned into a storage-friendly vanity. Options for beautifying/repairing a beat up piece include – • Stripping and refinishing the wood.
• Replacing the door fronts with cabinet glass.
• Installing glass shelving in place of particle board shelves.
• Changing out the hardware such as hinges and knobs.
