We were Contacted by a client that is refinishing the interior of her mountain home and bathroom in particular. She had a vessel sink and faucet in mind but needed the vanity to go with it. She sent us pictures of the sink and faucet and we designed and built the vanity to fit. We used primarily reclaimed pine and oak from old barns and white from the lumber mill for the drawer interiors and bottoms. We finished it with 2 coats danish oil and a satin polyurethane.

I love using reclaimed wood. It seems to tell a story from days of old.

I REALLY like that vanity! It has a lot of character. What did you charge to build this, if you dont mind telling?

VERY NICE! I REALLY like the setting, is there a shower over by the tree? I love an outdoor shower. HA HA
That will look great in a mountain cabin.

I’m so in love with this piece! I really wish I were permitted to build something like this for my own home; but, no!!!! It would never pass the wife.

I might just build one anyway and just leave it sitting in the front yard…it works for you!

Awesome work, Jeff!

Very nice work! I’m a big fan of those vessel sinks, and an even bigger fan of barnwood. Lots of character!

That’s a fine use of reclaimed wood and those handles complement the age of the wood really well.
Nice work.
