What if you did just a layer of plastic laminate over the top like a Nelson Credenza?


I know, I know. That would be nice, for sure. But man, I love wood. I hate covering it up.

But good to know how it really holds up! Thanks!

Also, who is Steve W? I feel like I'm missing something obvious....

I'm a little late to the bathroom vanity thread, but wanted to share what we did with ours as it seems related. We couldn't afford a full tear-out and re-do, so we had new custom doors & drawer fronts made. Also pulled the old plate mirror and filled the space with a birch panel, then mounted a mirrored medicine cabinet on top of it. Also installed a light box above. All the new woodwork was finished in amber shellac, which helped pull it all together. Relatively inexpensive, but a pretty good over-all effect...

Before (w/previous owners bath items, wall art & window treatment)...

After...

I must say, I really love Chimay's vanity...it's awesome!

Wow, old thread. Here's a our bathroom in a 1961 mid-mod. We simply replaced bath cabinet doors and draw fronts. Had a cabinet maker construct and in stall, although I got stuck the the shellacking duties...
