Vintage Dresser Re Loved into Sink Vanity

Happy New Week.
Summer is flying by.  I am such a summer girl and this is my season.  Love when we have sun filled lazy days of summer.

I had this dresser and it is one of my favorite dressers.   I just felt it needed a change up so Terry got his wonderful tools out and made my vision happen.  

Here is my sweet little dresser with the antique door knobs we put on it for the drawer pulls.  Looked cute here in my dining room with the picket fencing above it but it was time for it to have new purpose.


This was the only before picture of the vanity I could find in my pictures.  I forgot to take a before picture.  It was a small skinny vanity that I chippied up some time ago.  I hated how the sink jetted out over the vanity.    I just wanted to repurpose my cute dresser into something nice for our bathroom instead of this stock vanity with the crazy sink.



So here it the space after Terry pulled out the old vanity.




Terry put in a new sink and we used the faucet from the other sink.



Terry hinged the middle drawer front so we could get at the plumbing if necessary.


Now if necessary we can get at the plumbing and I have some storage.  The bottom drawer was left the way it was and can be used for storage too.







So now one of my favorite dressers has been re purposed into a new vanity for our master bathroom.

Have a great start to the week ahead.

  1. Oh Kris, this is NICE! Great job! The before was actually pretty innovative and very shabby chic, but the second one is definitely better with the sink set inside. GREAT JOB, TERRY!

  42. Kris, this is just a wonderful change. I have no room for a vanity in our tiny bathroom, but an old dresser would be my choice.

    Enjoy these lovely days of summer.

  43. love the dresser. But thought the other sink was nice also. Will you repurpose the old somewhere...maybe in your garden? Or may be donate it to Habitat. You and your guy are an awesome talented team.

    1. Thanks for your suggestion for Habitat. We actually gave it to our local Goodwill. Hmmmm I did not think about it for the garden that would have been probably a cool piece somewhere. Thanks for your visit and suggestion.

    2. I thought for sure I was going to see it tucked into a background of garden greenery and the bowl overflowing with pink petunias or some other similar flowers. I think if I lived near you I would want to shop at the locations you donate to. LOL. Love visiting your blog. Was gone from home for a couple of days and after unloading the car and getting my hubby settled...you were my next stop. You are such an inspiration for me.
