Dresser to vanity....we added the backsplash, took out the drawers to make room for the plumbing, re-attached the top drawer fronts, and replaced drawer spaces with basket storage.
Chippy medicine cabinet completed the look for this shabby farmhouse  dressing room.
Drawers are from the vanity .... great graphics !

I found this old dresser at a yard sale. It was soooo dark, that I couldn't see the grain in the wood.  It was so old and dry that after sanding, all I had to do was put sealer on it.  We turned it into a vanity for our farmhouse re-do project.  The drawers were slatted and had great graphics printed on them. We hung the drawers in the office !
