I’m starting the year off with an awesome DIY tutorial straight out of the gate! Have you seen any of the re-purposed dressers turned into vanities? I have fallen in love with them after seeing Jenna Sue’s last spring, but of course, I shopped around and couldn’t find anything I would want to bring home and upcycle! So naturally, I decided I would build my own farmhouse DIY Bathroom Vanity that looks like an upcycled dresser vanity!

I love it! Just look at that adorable faucet and the sink!! It looks a little funny right now sitting in my dining room since the bathroom is in complete shambles, but I’ll get it in its home shortly. Well, hopefully, it will be shortly!! Lol!! And can you believe those legs are staircase posts? Yeah, turn um upside down and they become legs!😏

Love this bathroom vanity but want something a little more modern and a little less farmhouse? Check out this DIY bathroom vanity that I made with a concrete vanity top!

Gathering Supplies for the Farmhouse DIY Bathroom Vanity

You are going to have to go to to get the free plans! Did you know that Kreg Tool is Kreg’s new DIY website? Yep, it’s an amazing website filled with tons of free plans! Each week on Monday, I grab a cup of coffee and sit down to go through the new plans they have, and I always find something I want to build! It is really great…well great for something fun to do, not great for my already never-ending to-build list!! Lol!!

DIY Dresser Vanity

The total cost to build this farmhouse DIY bathroom vanity is around 250 dollars including the sink and faucet! That is a steal of a deal right there! Even the cheapest of cheap particle board vanities at the big box stores are more expensive than that! This baby is solid wood and built to last for a great low price!

Update: with the cost of lumber skyrocketing as it has, the current 2022 cost of this DIY bathroom vanity is 450 dollars with the sink and faucet! Ugh! I want lumber prices back to normal!
