Building furniture from scratch is a gratifying endeavor, allowing you to create unique pieces that reflect your personal style and showcase your woodworking skills. I haven’t built a piece of furniture outside of built-in’s in quite some time and was so excited when I was asked to make this beam inspired powder bathroom vanity. I love that it isn’t your everyday traditional vanity base with a white quartz stone top. The all-wood element embodies both elegance and functionality and I just love how it turned out!!!
Building The Vanity
The choice of white oak as the primary material for this vanity, is my favorite wood to work with when it comes to furniture. White oak is renowned for its strength and resistance to moisture, making it the perfect choice for a bathroom setting. Additionally, the natural beauty of white oak’s grain patterns adds a touch of warmth and character to the overall design. One of the standout features is the big and chunky 4-inch legs. Go big or go home.
The process of measuring, cutting, joining, and refining the pieces was a labor of love and is now the cutest addition to this local airbnb!
I styled it as a console table and now I may or may not have to make this for my own home.
