Vanity Insanity

Vanity Insanity
You might look at this shelf and see a broken-down piece of old office furniture.  And you would be right!  That’s exactly what it is, which is why Shauna was able to snatch it up for a mere $7.50.  And boy, was she excited to find it. Not because she had been searching for a busted up old shelf, but because she had been looking high and low for something of these exact proportions to serve as a bathroom vanity.  Did you see that one coming?  I didn’t!  Check out the whole story on her blog Shauna Mailloux.

    I honestly didn’t see that coming. Bright blue, castors, sink, chrome. It’s great.

    Wow – I definitely would not have come up with that.

    I LOVE IT!!! The color is wonderful. I see so many random pieces of junk online turned into something that looks like a piece of junk that got spray painted. This project really has amazing style. Job well done.

    I love it. I love the castors because they add an element of surprise and make it seem portable. Great combo that adds interest, color and a splash of whimsy to what otherwise would just be a sink.

    Thanks for the sweet comments! About the casters – yes, they actually were my inexpensive solution to raise the cabinet up a few inches! Plus, I liked the industrial touch & I thought that it went well with the cabinet. (No worries though, the casters are locked & the cabinet is secured to the wall!) Thanks for the feature Lindsey!

    Wow do I ever love this! I am totally jealous. I have been looking for a steel framed cart (second hand) forever now.

    table that you created very creative. A mix of wood with iron to make a product that is very minimalist and simple
