Repurposing an Old Shutter Into a Bathroom Counter

14 September 2011

Repurposing an Old Shutter Into a Bathroom Counter

Thanks so much to everyone who shares in my excitement about my new (old) counters! I really really love doing this project. It is so fun to see something transform from a worn out piece of wood...to a stylin new vanity top! Here is a little background to get you up to speed...
I recently painted the cabinets...(see this post) and the counters were looking a bit blahhhhh. So I found some really cool shutters for the counter..(see this post)....and I am going to keep the same faucets and just purchase a new drop in sink.
I will continue to post about this project for the next few weeks...I will show you how I changed out the plumbing...took off the old vanity top...cleaned up the faucets....and put it all back together! But for now...lets just look at all the pretty pictures :) That's what we all love the best right?!?!

We bought this sink at Home Depot (white drop in sink) for $29...This was my first plumbing project...all alone...just me and the sink. I only made up 3 curse words in the process...I joke I joke....sort of....

 I love that this was the color of the wood when I picked it out. We love how it has some blues and greens and it is worn at bit. Not everything matchy-matchy....but still has the same tone and vibe :)  All the wood needed was a little clean up and a bit of sanding and poly...see this post for more info on that...

So much character....


And After.....
So in love :)
More post to come on how I accomplished all this :)

So beautiful! Love that the shutter makes a border to keep clutter from migrating (never an issue at my house... lol!!) Great transformation! Love the colors, too!
