How To Add Sink To Antique Dresser
Fasten one side of the track to the support with an included screw. Install the drain and faucet and make the plumbing connection. First, cut 3-inch pieces of 1x2 and glue them together, edge to face, in an L-shape, as shown. This is easyjust unhook all the connections (have a towel handy!) and get to ripping.
This is the start dresser we decided to make into a vanity: a 79 find from the lessons Salvation Army that I had originally bought to be my nightstand (I thought I needed the storage, but really didnt, so it sat empty). You wooden wont need this anymore! Remove the top drawer, lay the template that came with the sink on the dresser top and trace around it with a Sharpie-like marker. Trace the sink hole.
If youapos, disclosure, for the faucet hole we used this 1 and 14 inch drill bit. Please keep in mind we are not experts.
Process of Installing Sink into Antique Sideboard
Im sure there are variety of build ways to get this done, but this was our toons strategy and I think it was actually fairly simpleplus the drawers on the dresser are still functional, which is a huge plus in my book. Attach the faucet and plumbing. We tiled our vanity top. Use a jigsaw to cut a square macho out of the back piece of wood large enough for all the plumbing to set.
Again, go ahead and put silicon around the drain hole inside the sink as well (under that little rubber ring you see on bottom). This will keep things nice and sealed so water does not run out as it goes down the drain. I have a few tips after going through this process: look for a dresser that is at least 34 tall and at least 20 wide. If the dresser has top drawers, you will have to separate the drawer from the drawer face to make room for the plumbing.
I think it would be great either way. Turns out most dressers arent that tall, or that wide, so this was the hardest part of our search. Find dressers that are made of solid wood and sturdy. Fortunately we were able to leave the bottom drawer alone, it fit in under the plumbing perfectly. I loooooove this transformation.
