Bathroom Vanity

This vanity combines Mission sensibility with a cheerful, modern style to brighten up any bathroom and expand an otherwise small space.

The vanity here clearly takes inspiration from the classic Mission aesthetic: thick legs, strong vertical and horizontal lines, and paneled sides for a simple sense of depth. Yet the sturdy design is offset by the bright, carefree color and the open, airy design of the bottom shelf. This project was designed with smaller bathrooms in mind, to light up the room and provide the feeling of a larger vanity without taking up all the space. That said, this colorful piece can be a great addition to any lavatory of your choice, from an expansive washroom to a tucked-away water closet.

True to its inspiration, you’ll find this project full of sturdy joints. Mortise and tenons provide most of the structure here, with a few grooves to hold in those side panels of course. Of particular note, you’ll find a couple instances of twin tenons here as well. This is an easy method of adding strength to a joint when you think a little extra brawn might be needed (like when it’ll be holding up a porcelain sink basin). A finish of milk paint and lacquer adds a fresh look and protects the vanity from moisture, even through the most indulgent of showers. All in all, this simple-yet-sturdy piece is a great candidate for your next project.
