The bathroom sink in our RV/trailer recently broke when a shampoo bottle fell into it from the cabinet above. That was a surprise! It's plastic but who would imagine that it would be that fragile?!
It turned out to be a good thing. It gave us the opportunity to make some changes.
The bathroom is VERY small and the bump-out section of the vanity took up precious space.
Plus, a replacement plastic sink was close to $40 and small bar sinks were close to $100.
Time to get creative! Here's the before...with the plastic sink...
Instead of just replacing the sink, we re-created the whole vanity.
Hubby carefully deconstructed part of the vanity and re-built it even with the right side.
For a sink, we purchased a heavy duty, stainless steel mixing bowl for $6.99.
Hubby carefully made a hole in the bottom for the drain. We also bought a nicer faucet.
And, for the counter, we found a faux granite, laminate counter top that hubby cut down to fit.
Here's the after photo...
We gained 4 1/2" of floor/room space! That's a lot in a room this small (it's like a closet!).
We also gained counter space! Even though the depth/width of the counter is less,
the sink is smaller. That made for more overall counter space. How cool is that?!
It turned out to be a lot more work than we'd expected and took about twice as long.
But, we love how it turned out. We're excited for our next trip so we can try it out!
