Makeover Project #6: bedroom vanity unit
The sink in the second bedroom is most commonly used by guests when staying. It is perhaps a little old-fashioned having a sink in a bedroom, but it is useful. As the plumbing is in place, why not replace it with something slightly more elegant?
- Dated appearance
- Corner design occupies a lot of space
- Shaver light above is not required
- No storage
- Replace sink with counter-top sink and pillar tap
- Sit sink onto re-purposed, repainted chest of drawers (previously a 1950s utility dressing table with mirror, which had been made over once before)
- Holes and access holes for plumbing cut into back and top
- Shaver socket electrics covered with blanking plate
- Mirror positioned over blanking plate (LED mirror is battery operated)
Project Cost = £129: Sink £50 (ex-sample bought some years ago), Plumbing £20, Paint £12, Tap £30 (eBay), Chest of Drawers (free from a house clearance), Mirror £17 (DIY store closing down sale)
