My wife asked about having a pull out tray installed in the master bath vanity. I began by trying to repair the drawer in the existing vanity, but it was too out of square to allow a drawer to function properly. I had seen the “vessel sinks” in the hardware stores, and thought that by having the bowl on top of the vanity, there is room for more drawers below. So, that was my initial design for a new vanity. There is one door with the pull out tray she originally requested, but there are far more drawers now to allow for better organization.
The front is quartersawn white oak from Scott at quartersawnoak.com, and the arts and crafts style hardware comes from Lee Valley.
I tried my hand at a bit of tile work to trim out the counter top. The tile is affixed to the wall with an adhesive sheet – a new system I had not seen before. It holds very well, and once the grout is added, you have a sturdy tile wall surface.
The vessel sink is very functional and the accompanying faucet delivers a flowing stream of water.
Here are before and after photos of the vanity.
