One of your favorite custom pieces we have installed is the vanity in our master bathroom.
This bathroom didn’t always look like this. Matter of fact- it was a bit of a what in the world when we first toured this house. You can see more HERE.
But when we renovated for the second time a few years ago- the new vanity started with a beautiful console table from one of my favorite reproduction sources. We added sinks and faucets to turn it into a vanity fit for our French country style bathroom. And today for the Get the Look post- it is all about where to find the pieces to create this vanity- and also how to get a similar look for less.
Our Custom Vanity
Our vanity started with this beautiful Avignon table from Eloquence.
It is such a favorite of mine- so much so that I also used the large version of it in my kitchen to create a custom island. I love the details of the corbels and turned legs- so lovely! And Eloquence has the most incredible pieces I have found- so I highly recommend them and this table for the vanity- it is perfection.
But a question I have heard over and over is – can you get a similar look to fit different project budgets? So, I have done a bit of shopping and found a few options that have the same feeling or style that might work for you. (affiliate links)
The finish looks very similar and it has a similar size.
Love the look of this one- and the fact that you can finish it in any type of stain or paint you would like. This is a larger console table- so could even work in the kitchen.
Also available unfinished- this one has such a charming simple look- and I love the size (and price) of it. On Sale today for just over $300.
This one is a tad smaller at 50″ but has a similar look and charm. The price is crazy good for solid wood.
This one is a smaller size – 48″ so it is perfect for smaller bathroom spaces. And just over $200 makes it a steal for a solid wood console.
We used simple oval sinks on our vanity- truth be told- they were not the right ones when they arrived. But time constraints on the project meant we used them. Ours are not quite as large as these are- they are smaller sinks in person. Something to be mindful of is the sizing of the sinks in relation to which console you go with- since that changes everything.
We used these pretty brass bridge faucets – which I absolutely love. The thing to keep in mind when shopping for faucets for using with ABOVE mount sinks- you need to make sure that the height of the faucet is tall enough to be above the sink.
This one below is the same faucet we have:
I hope that helps with getting the look of our custom vanity for less.
Each of these options look like they will give you the look- just remember a few things:
Seal the wood before using as a sink to keep it from getting damaged
Measure measure measure- not all tables are sized the same as the console we used. Your sinks and faucets need a certain amount of space to be able to work and so- your table needs a certain amount of counter space as well. So make sure to note the measurements according to not only your space- but also to the amount of counter area needed for your sinks and fixtures.
If you need a bit more depth- you can add a ‘top’ of marble or other counter material and overhang it on both sides to create more depth. This would likely require a fabricator.
And the legal disclaimer- this project is shared only as inspiration- always consult a qualified professional for any kind of work you would like done.
And again- if you want to see what this bathroom looked like when we moved into this house- you might not believe it- but this is where this bathroom started.
Happy Shopping all!
