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

    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.

        2. Antique bureau. An old desk is usually reserved for seated work. But adapted as a bathroom vanity, it aids in work of a different kind: the act of getting ready for the day or washing up before bed. The sturdy bureau looks right at home in this bathroom, and the drawers on each side leave room for the overmount sink and plumbing.

        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.

        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.

        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 office desk transformed into a vanity is a genius touch. The drawers provide extra storage for toiletries.

        This truly inventive vanity is created from an old desk. The drawers make perfect storage for toiletries and necessities.

        Too large but an example with a self rimming sink versus one on top.

        old windows frosted over--can we do this somewhere?

        Consider antique desk in office for this use. It would need refinishing and work. Photos on my phone. Grandma's old desk is only glued at corners--not durable enough.
