Last month, I showed you guys the final reveal of the bathroom/laundry closet makeover I was working on, and I’m excited to share some of the more specific details now!
We started with this tiny little vanity that was probably original to the house 30 years ago:
We had a teeny budget of $100 for this room (and remember it included our laundry too), so I turned to some Facebook yardsale sites to look for a replacement vanity. I ended up finding one for $75 that fits the space perfectly!
In the before picture, take a look at the electrical outlet above the countertop. You can use that as a reference point to see just how much taller the new vanity is! It’s the perfect height now for my tall kids! You can also use the toilet paper holder on the wall to see how much wider the new vanity is.
Crazy, right?! Not a bad fit for a $75 vanity that I happened to stumble upon!
But while it filled out this corner perfectly… it left us with an awkward looking sheet mirror.
Since ripping that down would have meant having to replace all the drywall (no clips, it’s just glued straight onto the drywall), we knew the mirror was staying.
To fill up the awkward space where there is no no mirror, built a shelf!
Now, obviously we did A LOT more than just build a shelf! The details are all in the final reveal post, and I’ll have some more posts coming soon about framing out the mirror and the wall treatment.
But isn’t this shelf just perfect for this space??
It only took us about an hour to build and we used all scrap wood from our garage, so it was completely free!!
If you needed to purchase the wood, though, it would still cost you less than $10!
Check out how we built it…
