Hey, it’s angela from vlog. Angela Mariemade. I’m excited to share today. How we built our DIY bathroom vanity? Last week I shared our bathroom Makeover reveal. And our DIY bathroom. Vanity was a beautiful, focal point of the room. We used premium pine wood and plywood for the build, and it only cost about 100 in lumber even with the higher cost of lumber. These days. The vanity was built to go with a 25 inch by 22 inch vanity sink top, but you can adjust the measurements for a different size sink. Also, I will link the exact faux marble sink that we used below this video. You can get a full cut list, materialist tutorial and printable bill plans on my blog, which is linked below this video in the description box before we get started, though. Make sure to hit that subscribe button. I share fun, New DIY and decor videos every week here on the channel. All right, let’s get started. Step one is to make the initial lumber cuts for the bathroom. Vanity again you can get a full cut list on my blog, which is linked below this video use a miter saw and cut the two by twos one by twos and two by three to size use a table saw or circular saw and straight edge guide to make the plywood. [MUSIC] cuts step two is to add pocket holes to the boards add pocket holes to all sides of the two plywood boards. Make sure the kreg jig is set for a half inch thick one. [MUSIC] then adjust the kreg jig for a one and a half inch thick wood and add pocket holes to both sides of the two by twos and two by threes next, adjust the kreg jig for three quarter inch thick wood and add pocket holes to both sides of the one by twos. [MUSIC] Step three is to build the two side frames of the DIY bathroom vanity attach the longer plywood side frame together with a 1 by 2 board on the bottom of it. Make sure that the back of the plywood is flush with the back of the 1×2 I used quarter inch scrap wood to help with this part by placing it under the plywood, use one inch crank screws and wood glue to attach the boards together. [MUSIC] attach another 1×2 board to the opposite end of the plywood the same way next, attach a two by two leg on one side of the plywood board and one by two use one inch crank screws on the plywood board pocket holes and one and a quarter inch creek screws on the 1×2 pocket holes also use some wood glue as well. A little tip is that it helps to place the quarter inch scrap wood under the plywood when attaching the two by two legs to it so that the quarter inch indent on the front side is even [Music] finally mark three and a half inches up from the bottom of the two two by two legs and attach a two by two for the shelf frame to the legs at this mark with two and a half inch creek screws make sure that the crig holes face the underneath side as shown here so that they will be hidden when the vaginity is standing up. Repeat, all of these steps to create a second side frame for the DIY bathroom. [MUSIC] Vanity begin to attach the side frames of the vanity together and create the back of it. With the two 2×3 boards, attach one two by three at the top of the vanity and one adjacent to the 1×2 bottoms, which are 14 inches up from the bottom of the legs. Attach them with wood glue and two and a half inch crank screws. Also clamps definitely help with this step note that the back of the vanity will remain open so that the plumbing can easily come through next, attach the lower shelf two by two to the back of the vanity three and a half inches up from the bottom of the vanity legs again, use two and a half inch crate screws and make sure that the pocket holes face the underneath side step five is to attach the front boards to the vanity attach three two by twos to the vanity sides to create the vanity front use two and a half inch crank screws and wood glue attach one two by two at the top one in the middle, which is 14 inches up from the bottom of the legs and one towards the bottom, which is three and a half inches up from the bottom of the legs for the top and middle two by twos. Make sure that the pocket holes face the inside of the vanity so that they won’t be seen and for the bottom two by two. You want to make sure that the pocket holes are facing the underneath side again? Now the frame of the vanity is complete and we can move on to adding the two shelves measure the openings of the vanity, where the middle and lower shelves will go and cut two plywood boards to size to create the shelves. It’s important to measure the exact opening on your belt. In case there are any slight variations in the actual measurements that should be accounted for add pocket holes to all sides of the plywood shelves and make sure the krig jig is set for half inch thick wood first. Attach the middle shelf to the vanity using wood glue and one inch crank screws. We attached our middle shelf, fifteen and a half inches up from the bottom, so it would be flush with the top of the one by twos and two by twos. We clamped a scrap board to hold the plywood in place where we wanted it to stay. Another tip. Here is to be very careful when drilling these one-inch screws into the one by twos and two by twos due to the thinner plywood. The screws can pop out. Sometimes if they’re drilled in too hard, we had to back ours out slightly. Attach the second lower plywood shelf into the bottom two by twos so that the plywood is flush with the top edge of the two by twos. Now it’s time to add the two doors first measure the exact length and width opening of the vanity for the doors. You want the doors to have a sixteenth of an inch or an eighth inch gap around them? We decided to do an eighth inch gap around our doors, so we’d have a little extra room. Construct the doors using half inch plywood framed out with one by threes again. You can get a full cut list for everything. Below this video. After cutting the 1 by 3s to size add pocket holes to the shorter 1 by 3s for the insides of the door frame, then add pocket holes to the two plywood boards begin constructing one of the doors by attaching two of the shorter one by threes to the shorter sides of one of the plywood boards with one inch creak, screws use quarter inch scrap wood again under the plywood to help. [MUSIC] attach the two longer one by threes to the longer sides of the plywood with crank screws [Music]. Repeat, these steps again to create a second door at this point, it’s easiest to go ahead and drill the holes for the cabinet knobs. I drilled our holes One and a quarter inches in from the one by three side and three and three quarters of an inch down from the top step. Eight is to install the doors on the vanity. Attach a 1×2 on each side of the vanity insides by the door openings with one-inch wood screws. This provides a flush surface with our 2×2 frame for attaching the door hinges. Also very importantly for installing the doors make sure to follow the directions that came with the inset door hinges. You’re using. We decided to use European hinges for inset doors for the first time. European hinges are nice because the doors can be adjusted after installation to get the perfect gaps and placement drill holes for the door hinges on the door frames. We use this Craig concealed door hinge jig for the first time to get the perfect hole for our hinges to attach the door hinges to the door. Use a square to help. Keep the hinge in place properly, then pre-drill holes for the screws and add the screws in place. We used a special self-centering drill bit to get perfectly centered. Pre-drilled holes after attaching the hinges to both of our doors. We line them up in place on our vanity. We use popsicle sticks taped in place with painters tape under the bottom of the doors to account for the bottom gap needed. We didn’t bother doing this on the sides, Though. Since we could just adjust the gaps once the hinges were installed. Also, we clamped a scrap board to the front to help. Keep the door in place while screwing the hinges into the one by twos on the inside of the vanity. Exactly where we needed them to be. For some reason, once the hinges were attached to the vanity, though they weren’t sitting at a 90 degree angle and the doors were going inwards. This was our first time using these kind of inset European hinges. And I have no idea why this is happening. It was super frustrating. Though to fix the problem, we installed two magnetic door catches to stop the doors from going inwards, which worked great. Then we removed the popsicle sticks and adjusted the hinges so that we had perfectly even door gaps all around. I’m so happy these doors turned out. [MUSIC] And that’s it for the build. Finally, we stained the bathroom vanity with two coats of provincial by minwax and then added a satin polyurethane. The next day, we used a 25 inch by 22 inch faux marble sink top on our vanity, which I think totally elevates the look of it, especially for the style. I was going for in our bathroom makeover, which I will link below. Don’t forget to check that out. We attached the sink top with some silicone caulk and a half inch overhang on each side. [MUSIC] Also for our plumbing. We had to use a special pipe. However, a small opening could be cut out of the middle plywood shelf with a jigsaw or a hole saw and drill to allow plumbing to fit as well. I didn’t want to sacrifice on lower shelf space because of the plumbing. I finished off the vanity with two beautiful round breast knots on the door, which I love [Music]. I absolutely love how our DIY bathroom vanity turned out. I think it looks really custom and high-end, but it’s totally budget-friendly. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
