I'm on my second bathroom remodel in the last few weeks. Now I have two old 36" oak vanitys to get rid of. So..... what is a gear head to do?..... shop upgrade. I turned them into a new work bench. The only thing I purchased was one sheet of plywood for the shelf on top of the vanity. The rest I had kickin around. I think it came out pretty nice and hides some more junk in my shop. I might paint the raw wood, maybe black?

Here is the new vanity in the remodeled hall bath. I also installed a new cabinet on the opposite wall with a custom stained top to match the new vanity.

Looks great Todd. A good way to recycle something old into a useful item.

Yea, you can never have too many cabinets. At least that is my experience.
I might build a couple of drawers and slides to make those top panels actually do something.

I have a few large files cabinets that I really like, but some wall cabinets would be nice. I am going to try and get the shop in order this week.

That's a useful looking addition to your shop Todd! I'd like to get organized better myself, but it seems every time I clear out a spot, I buy something to put there!

Both projects look really great. Maybe you have a new line of work in your future.
