Vanity to a Rolling Kitchen Cart

Karen at Redoux Interiors is used to making over furniture that is old, broken, or otherwise unloved.  This time, however, her project started with a piece of furniture that was actually new–shocking, I know!  Friends of hers that own rental properties passed on this new bathroom vanity that they had decided not to use during a recent remodel.

Karen re-imagined this bathroom vanity as a kitchen cart!  She began by adding a chalkboard panel to the open back.  She topped the vanity with reclaimed wood for a work surface.  The body was painted using chalkpaint for a straight-from-Grandmas’s-farm feel.  Karen added wheels so that the cart could be rolled out into the center of a kitchen for an extra work surface.  You’d never guess this was originally intended to house a bathroom sink!  Awesome, right?

Wood Farmhouse Vanity

Judi from The 1829 Farmhouse has been through a serious bathroom renovation in her 182-year-old home. The space needed a vanity that was fitting of its vintage farmhouse style, so Judi designed a “workbench” vanity to be built from the 300-year-old wood that had been pulled from the bathroom wall.

Wood from Walls

After some deliberation, Judi stained the top and painted and distressed the bottom of the vanity. The porcelain faucet handles make the perfect drawer pulls for the vintage style. Since this house has been a part of Judi’s husband’s family for years (and years and years!), it is really cool how they have been able to reuse some of the original construction in their renovations.
