Hi there! Have you ever decided to paint a room and it turned into a complete demo job? Well, that’s what happened days before Thanksgiving when I painted paint colors on the bathroom wall in the basement. Days after Thanksgiving, the bathroom floor, shower tile, toilet, and vanity were in a dumpster bag on our driveway.
Yep, we had a toilet peeking out of the dumpster bag during the holidays. We discussed adding lights and placing the blow-up snowman on top. This is one argument in favor of an active HOA board.
We survived that major bathroom renovation with only one final decision left to make: the bathroom vanity. Our goal was to create an industrial, teen-proof bathroom that could hold up to sleepovers, pizza parties, and late night ping pong matches. I fell I fell in love with the Abbott single sink console.
But at just under $2000 it was a bit of budget buster with tuition payments and a business loan that was #thisclosetobeingpaidoff. And, then we decided we could create a Pottery Barn knock-off vanity. The plans were right there on page 68 of the latest Pottery Barn catalog. Okay, I just made that number up.
The Pottery Barn knockoff vanity was so much easier than we anticipated. The end of this eight-month renovation was in sight.
Pottery Barn Knockoff Vanity Details
We used the following:
- 4×4 for the legs on the vanity
- 2×6 for the front, back and side support slats
- 1×4 for the lower shelf.
- table saw
We purchased a sink/countertop combo from Lowe’s and dropped it into the frame. We kept the back of the bathroom vanity open; exposing the plumbing. I added storage baskets to disguise the pipes. It’s a solid vanity that looks amazing in the basement bathroom. The total cost of this Pottery Barn knockoff was approximately $475. The drop in counter/sink was the biggest expense.
