|cool vintage drawers|
today our carpenter, darrin, brought over our sink vanity that he custom made from the wood that was pulled out of the walls. these babies were almost 18 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches thick. they have to be close to 300 years old as our home is over 180 years old...the tree they were harvested from would have to be pretty old to get a board that wide.
i gave darrin several pics to give him an idea of what i was looking for as well as the sink that was to be mounted on the top. it's actually a wall mounted sink but wanted to have more of a vintage vessel style. i really wanted to use an old dresser but due to space constraints we opted for a more open "workbench" style. the drawers came from my parents old shed and he worked them into the design. i really like what he came up with but now am unsettled on how to finish it. i am open to ANY suggestions.

[update: we left the top as is and finished it with about 5 coats of clear floor finish. the base was whitewashed with pittsburg paints eiffel tower (about 3:1 ratio). see below for completed bathroom link.]
we also have this sink which was the original idea but then i saw the curvy one on craiglist which we got for FREE! should i swap out the sinks, that is if it can be done?
