At this point the vessel sink is installed.
This post does not contain all that info because it was just going to be too long to do in one post. If you’d like to see how the sink was installed, that post is HERE. Stay tuned or subscribe. I’ll update this post with links when it’s ready for reading.
The other thing I’d done is round that lower right corner. The reason I did this is because once my final cuts were done I’d decided to add an iron birch edge to make it look a little more finished. If all my pieces had been the same color maybe I would have skipped this step but they weren’t and I needed a little something to tie it up neat and tidy.
Quick Tip: Use anything round to trace a rounded edge before cutting.
I bought my iron on birch in the building material section, it just comes in a roll and is very easy to use. They had a bit of a selection but mainly its unfinished and is ready to be stained once it’s been applied to what ever you’re planning to use it for. I don’t recommend staining prior to ironing it on.
A little heat and a little treasure and you’re good to go!
Now that it’s attached I went back in with my darkest stain and finished out the base of my vanity.
Ready for the backsplash!
All that was done to complete the countertop and back splash was to buy a 1″ x 4″ and have it cut, or cut it to the length of each side touching a wall.
Stain it up and attach it with liquid nails.
I added some more of the iron on birch to the edges of those pieces and nada! I had my self a brand new sink and vanity!
Now it’s time to paint the base!
You’ll see in the image above that my base still had a base-coat of white on it. If you’d like to read about the color treatment done to the base you can click HERE.
This make-over was a ton of fun and oh so satisfying to see it complete! My next project will be the wall and I plan to do a very cool wainscoting with a slim tile insert! Subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss it!
