With easy do you mean, "do it yourself", or mostly "most cost effective"?
Do you need two sinks? Does the general layout work for you?is there enough light for you at the sink area?
There are a lot of options.
I think the biggest cosmetic impact will be different mirrors.
Pick some, two or three with a frame that look substantial and match your general bathroom decor.
You can also paint formica countertops to look more current.
Adding some new handles on your cabinets would also look very good.
Maybe add a plant (fern?) on the countertop to give that area a fresh look?
Fresh towels and bathmats always give a nice finishing touch.

I agree that the mirrors could use a change. Those lights on the other hand are a big part of what is killing the room. You need some nice looking vanity lights over the mirrors, not hidden in the ceiling. I doubt the current ones give you enough light as it is.
