Beautiful Bathroom Redos on a Budget
Homeowners share economical, innovative ideas for redoing a bathroom.
Hide CaptionShow CaptionA surplus purchase from the builders of the Denver International Airport combined with some yacht building techniques created this inexpensive vanity and sink.
You might expect to see a sink like this inside a high-end yacht, but this handmade wooden piece is in the Longmont, Colo., home of Robby Finley. He spent only $300 on the sink. First Robby talked to a couple of yacht builders to find out how to build and seal it. He used bird's-eye maple and coated it with a commercial epoxy. (He says you can find marine-grade finishes at most boating stores.) The vanity is made from stainless steel he picked up at a surplus auction from items used to build Denver's International Airport.
