  1. I would love to go shopping with you! I would definitely find a place for that beautiful sideboard...is it long and sturdy enough for a double vanity? Would be stunning anywhere!

    1. Thank you Kim-so many possibilities! I am now leaning towards not using it for a vanity since I think it might be a little small for 2 sinks. I suppose I will have to go hunt some more!

  15. Great finds! Where did you find that lovely silver pitcher??? With greek key motif no less!
    I just painted a buffet very similar to the one you found. A young couple bought it from me and said they were going to use it as their bathroom vanity. Suggestions are, use vessel sinks, have the faucet come out of the wall (instead of drilling into the top of vanity) and be prepared to modify the drawers to accommodate the plumbing(the drain pipe). They can still work as drawers, you just have to shorten them and rebuild them to look like little mazes, where it fits around the pipe! I left the wood top on mine and sealed it with four coats of an oil urethane (not poly) by GF.

    1. Thank you Beth-very good suggestions. I made my daughters vanity in her bathroom from buffet too and left the top wood. I think I might try a bigger piece now but will see how I feel in the next few weeks.
