It is an old oak desk used as a vanity. The counter top is varnished oak. The sink is from Kohler.

What is the depth of the desk the sink was placed in? - I have an old oak desk that I could use but it is 33 inches deep. That seems too deep.

A standard vanity is 20"-24" deep. If you have the space you could use the 33" desk but ensure you install the sink within a few inches from the front of the desk.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This truly inventive vanity is created from an old desk. The drawers make perfect storage for toiletries and necessities.
Lisa Frederick added this to Design 2012: Not Your Grandma's Antiques
An old office desk transformed into a vanity is a genius touch. The drawers provide extra storage for toiletries.
Some genius designer repurposed a 1900s oak banker's desk as a bathroom vanity. I'll say it again: genius. The desk probably had a rolltop that was either busted or wasn't used. These are some of the heaviest, most solid pieces known to collectors. It's a great example of someone thinking outside the box.
An old teacher's desk also makes a lovely vanity. And here the drawer space can be saved, since the plumbing can fit in the middle.
The depth of a standard vanity ranges from 18 to 24 inches. While you may find an old dresser that is that deep, any size piece can actually be used, within the confines of your space. If you are repurposing a larger and deeper dresser or vintage desk, like the one pictured here, make sure that you place the sink close enough to the front edge to avoid excessive reaching. Setting the sink 3 to 4 inches from the front edge will prevent splashes onto the floor and allow easy access to the water.
