Vanity Build and Bathroom overhaul

Our bathroom was the last update we needed to complete before we sold our home. We wanted to give some warmth and character to the space so I built a vanity with a butcher-block top and 3 inch legs to keep it looking light. Everything was built from scratch; from the legs and drawers of the vanity, to the wainscoting and mirror. Used my new Ryobi tile saw to cut and install wood look tile to pull the whole thing together. I also removed the old lighting and installed two rustic looking hanging edison lights.

  • How did you seal the butcherblock? I would worry it could warp/swell
    By Art Fin, on December 4, 2017
    • I had the same concern but the underlying butcherblock is beech which is pretty hard and 3 coats of sealcoat(shellac) and 4 coats of poly should hold up for some time. I made sure to do every side so moisture couldn't creep in
