We were in the process of remodeling our downstairs basement so we could rent it out. We are first time home owners and had basement that worked great for an apartment so we decided to try and do as much ourselves to save on cost. We decided to get rid of the old vanity, cabinet, and mirror that was in the bathroom but wanted something cheap, simple and quick. (old picture for reference)
I was able to knock this out in 1 weekend (unfinished) and spent less than $40 on materials. I used all pine and just finished it with a half dozen coats of poly. We purchased the counter top from a local Habitat Restore for $20 and another $15 for the mirror. I used pocket host on almost everything and made some simple shelves with pocket holes and carsiding. Those are not intended to hold much weight but added some storage for our renter. The bottom shelf has floating slats since the main water valve to the house sits directly under it.
