Making a taller powder room vanit..

We are upgrading our powder room with a $1,000 budget. However we quickly discovered that you can easily spend $1,000 in a new sink, granite and the fixtures. So we did not have money for a new vanity but we had a really short vanity less 29” you literally had to bend to wash your face so we decided to give a shot and try make the existing vanity taller following these steps:
1. Removed the old vanity
2. Created a 5” tall wood frame to put on top of the vanity
3. Glued and nailed the frame
4. Put some molding to cover union between the top of the vanity and the frame
5. Switched the doors from an old vanity that was laying around.
6. Primed and painted the vanity with BM advance paint.

This was my first time doing this type of modification and I think it turned pretty well and the vanity felt stronger with the wood frame but the most important thing. Wife is happy with it and we saved $400

Cheers
