What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Getting Girly: The Dressing Table
With its fancy drawer hardware, shiny counter and glamorous look, this sink vanity has a dressing table flair to it.
A pretty antique sideboard can become a vanity when a hole is cut in the top and a sink is dropped in.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Bedeck Your Furniture With New Knobs and Pulls
Hardware doesn't need to fade into the background. These pulls add contrast to the piece and contribute to its old-world charm.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Bathroom Design: How to Pick Out a Vanity
Hanging vanities with drawers can provide a good amount of storage, since they take advantage of the often-unused space around plumbing. Berkovich suggests avoiding bulky medicine cabinets but often uses wall cabinetry (at least 10 inches deep) to add storage. If you're stuck with a small vanity cabinet, consider adding extra cabinets that rest on the counters, as in this photo. "You'll get more storage without losing floor space," says Hethmon.
This vanity was created from an intricate antique dresser that was professionally customized by a cabinetmaker. The black granite countertop provides a waterproof surface and a dark contrast to the otherwise all-white woodwork and wainscoting. Storage is provided in the side drawers, as well as in the matched pair of upper cabinets and drawers.The vanity mirror would have typically been nestled lower, between the matching side cupboards. In this case it was raised to accommodate the faucets and soap holder.
