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)
#1. Console Table
The finish looks very similar and it has a similar size.
#2. Tuscan Unfinished Console
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.
#3. Extended Length Console
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.
#4. Courtdale 50″ Console
This one is a tad smaller at 50″ but has a similar look and charm. The price is crazy good for solid wood.
#5. Solid Wood Table
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:
Brass Bridge Faucet
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!

Nothing better than some amazing before and afters of a space like this! Your bathroom has long been one of my major inspirations for my master bathroom reno which I will be starting soon. I can’t believe how far yours has come. You are a girl after my own heart in seeing the potential in something nobody else wants to tackle
You think it WoUld look ok if there was one sink, to side instead of the middle? That way if i decide to Put another Sink in later i could. I love it, it’s beautiful.
I think that would totally work if you wanted to do one sink. 🙂
