Top the wall-mounted vanity with a vessel sink
Mix and match a sink ($128.70) with a storage chest to create a look that's uniquely yours. Creating this unit may look difficult, but it just took a little creativity. First, cut a hole in the chest top and in the back of the top drawer to accommodate plumbing. Move the back of the top drawer forward to make room for the pipes.
To protect the chest top from the occasional water splash, have a piece of glass cut to fit (don't forget to have a hole cut for the plumbing). For interest, opt for a tint to complement the room's color scheme.
