Designer Bathroom Vanities That Anyone Can Have In Their Hoboken Home

Are you an HGTV or DIY fanatic? If so, you have probably seen those episodes where they find an old cabinet at a flea market and turn it into a beautiful designer bathroom vanity or chest. If you are not familiar with this practice, it is easier than you think to recreate this look without having to pay those designer prices. You too can have those designer quality pieces you have seen in magazines and thought you could never afford in your Hoboken home for an affordable price.
To start the process, you want to scour local flea markets and antique sales for just the right piece of furniture that will work in the area of your home you plan to place it in. An old dresser, large nightstand, dressing table, or desks are all pieces of furniture that are used frequently. It is important before you buy your treasured find to measure the space that you plan to put it in so that you do not get it back and home and it does not fit.

Once you bring your find home, you want to examine the way it was constructed in detail. Is it held together with screws or wooden blocks? Things like this are what you will want to look for. If your purpose is to use it as a bathroom vanity, you want to carefully remove the top of it intact as this will make a great template for your new top. Next, cut a hole in the place on the back where the plumbing will go. Finally, level and shim your new piece into place until it is level. You want to be sure your new vanity is secure to the wall by screwing it into the studs on the wall.Choose a top to place on the vanity that will match your Hoboken home such as granite, marble or Corian. Do not forget to pick up a new sink to go with your new top.
