Don’t have a vanity table or can’t seem to find the right one? You can make one yourself.
So today I am going to show you how to…
DIY A Wall Vanity
It will take you a couple of days as you will be using both stain and polyurethane. But the project itself is fairly easy!
You will need the following supplies:
- Shelf (you can either cut yourself or buy at Home Improvement Store…mine is from Home Improvement)
- Sponges (one for stain and one for poly)
- Plastic (to stain on)
You will also need both a mirror (see below) and some stools or a bench. I chose 2 storage stools.
First you should check to see if you need to sand the wood at all.
Then you will want to stain the shelf.
Corbels will need to be stained as well.
They will need to dry for at least 4 hours, stain reapplied and then let dry for another 4 hours.
Once dried, add the polyurethane to both the shelf and the corbels.
The Polyurethane will need to dry for about 8 hours. You may want to apply a second coat. And you may want to sand thereafter with the finest sandpaper you can buy. You will have to just use your gut, fingers and eyes to determine.
I added 2 coats of poly to them.
And then it is time to hang the shelf, the mirror and place the stools.
Love the way this turned out in my guest room!! Hope that I have given you some inspiration.
