How to make a DIY vanity unit for a wash basin

  • Wood Cutter & Sandpaper

IKEA SIDE TABLE Hemnes simply gave me an idea on how to make a self-contained vanity unit for a wash basin and I am going to share the same with you all.

Step 1: Ikea Hemnes

The closet in the picture is actually a bed side table, not a vanity bottom. The model name is Ikea Hemnes.

Step 2: Look at the piping type

Before you start your work, please understand the shape of the sink pipe first. You have to cut the top part of the hemnes along the shape of the tubing so you can fit under the sink.

Step 3: Cutting

Cut the top of the hemnes to fit the shape of the piping.

Step 4: Handle

You may put a nice handle like a picture, if you want.

Step 5: Completion

This is how it looks on completion. If you are burdened with the cost of remodeling the lower portion of the sink, you can opt to do something like this.
