I was wondering if anyone remembers this and if I’m nuts for trying to save the front? Well, maybe don’t answer that 2nd question.
When we first moved into our house in 1986 this bathroom vanity was what was here. A few years later we built a bathroom in the basement and put the old fixtures downstairs. Well, we’ve redone our bathroom upstairs again since then with tile and everything. We retiled our shower in the basement about 5 years ago, but the toilet hasnt been working right for a long time. So we bought a new toilet and I told my husband since we have to pull that up let’s replace the floor too, with ceramic that matches the shower. So we are.
He pulled out the sink and said this is trash, might as well go buy a new one.
It’s small as you can see, it’s 19”. It came from Sears and was made in 1978. It was white and I added the gray color to give it whatever kind of look I was going for at the time and I remember hating it. But I kind of like it now. The front is some kind of plastic and there is nothing wrong with it. Ok, some might say it’s ugly, but remember I kind of like that old rustic look. And not only that but I have the toilet topper to match. If I replace the sink I have to replace everything. I was trying to go with cheap here. It’s a small bathroom in the basement, very small. Spent more on the tile then I thought I would. I’ve looked at what they have at Lowes and home Depot for that size and it’s junk. For about $20.00 or alittle more I can replace the cabinet with real wood and still use the same front. I can’t believe how they had it attached. It was pretty neat actually and I can reuse the pieces to put it back on a wooden cabinet.
I put a sticky note on the cabinet last night saying do not throw me away. I want to keep it for exact measurements. He looked at me and rolled his eyes. I know we have enough going on in this house for me to start another project but I have a 3 day weekend and I think I can do it.
I’m not sure why I’m even posting this because nobody is going to change my mind. I still like the cabinet front as old and outdated as it is. But it works in my little bathroom. I think I’m going to keep it. I was more courious to see if anyone remembers this from the 70’s.
