Antique Sideboard Buffet turned into Double Sink Vanity

We purchased this antique sideboard buffet from craigslist and turned it into a double sink vanity. The three doors on the front made it perfect for a two sink vanity. The middle cupboard is all usable space and there is lots of storage in the other cupboards under the sinks. We put Travertine tile on top with the original sideboard wood backsplash. We added Kohler white oval sinks and kept the Moen chrome vintage lever faucets we already had.

antique sideboard buffett - i have an antique cherry buffet and would also like to turn into a bathroom vanity. Could you give me an approximate cost for this project? My husband thinks it would be more expensive than buying a 72 inch double sink vanity but i bet it all was under $1000. Love yours! Thank you - Laura

I did a single sink with an old dresser. I took the dresser to the granite installer and used a remnant, it was 45.00 a sf. My sink came from eBay, 85.00.

Removing the wood top was the most time consuming as it wasn't meant to be removed. It was built when furniture was made to last. We had the tile and sinks installed by a professional. Probably comparable at about $1000, but less if you can do it yourself.
