Thinking Bathroom: Vanity, Vanity

Bathroom vanities are expensive. At Home Depot, we’d likely be dropping at good $500 to get something we want. And then we’d still have to buy a sink. Boo.

Ikea’s cheap. And we like their stuff. But none of their vanities come in the 20′ depth that we need. Boo.

But wait… in passing, on the weekend, my MIL mentioned that she had once wanted to convert a dresser into a vanity to put in their bathroom. When she said it, I don’t think the option fully sunk into my head. Two days later, it finds itself fully lodged in my thoughts.

How beautiful would something like this be?

I know: in this, my tastes tend towards traditional. Beautiful curvy lines, crisp white paint. Actually, my tastes lean towards traditional with a splash of contemporary. More like this.
The modern sink balances the traditional dresser beautifully, I think. I won’t go so far as the distressed look though. Honestly, I just don’t get that. 
I even found the perfect vessel sink:
The black marble would perfectly combine with our marble tile, adding even more depth and beautifulness to the whole thing. 
So now I just have to find a really awesome dresser that is no more than approximately 30” high, 20” deep, and 34” wide. Value Village, Craigslist, Kijiji… here I come!
