Agates. beach rock & glass bathroom vanity

cathyscacheApril 9, 2009

Hi, I have been feeling like crap since Sat. finally better today (the crude or whatever). Anyway started on my vanity today. 2 side panels and 2 front panles. I raised the glass w/an MDF panel to make it closer to level w/ the rocks and agates. It will be so much prettier when it is grouted and clear coated. The rocks and agates show all their beautiful colors when coated and shiny.

Oh, what a clever idea to raise the panel. I can imagine how the clear coat makes the tess shine. Looking good, girlie.

Hey, Grankids and I went to the beach today and we scored big time!!! The tide was out and the beach was clear of ice. Beautiful rocks for the vanity!! It was a beautiful day while we were there and we found some great rocks. I have a enough supply to finish the entire project. One panel is done. Need more glass though, and I ordered it today. So will continue with the rocks and do the glass when it gets here. I may grout this finsihed one tonight, may do each one as their done, just so the grouting process won't seem so extreme....

Hi, I got one panel grouted yesterdy and ran out of grout. So hopefully will finish today. Clear coating the agates and rocks before grouting, made clean up sooo much easier, why I didn't think of doing this before now is beyond me. But I'm thinking I don't like the light wood of the vanity now, I'm thinking I may restain a darker color....any opinions? I really think the light is too stark and I actually prefer darker woods. Not real sure now why I choose the lighter for the bathroom anyway...huummm I'm sure I had a reason....

I finished today. Had a hard time getting a good pic (tight quarters) sorry. But here it is just needs sealed. Still not sure about the wood color. I've decided to wait a week and see what I think then. But now I really have to get my mind on the backsplash.....I'm thinking tree....??? Just a thought still, but it's brewing....
It rained today and is suppoosed to snow tonight. Spring is so slow getting here in Alaska...Later

That is soooooooooooo pretty, CATHY. The sealer really gives it a richness. IMO, you're right about the starkness of the wood against your other woods. Your door facing is so beautiful, and since you LIKE dark woods, I'm thinking you'd really like to stain the vanity. Betcha you'll stain it.

Well guess I'll start sanding today. Lord I am a glutten for punishment!!! Cause I have decided to restain a darker color. Just don't like the lighter wood...The darker will look much better I hope. So probably be about a week long job. I was really hoping the lighter would grow on me and I'd be ok with it. But it hasn't...so here I go!!! I'm sure I will be much ahppier with it when it's done..

It's gorgeous , I just love how it all turned out. I agree that you'll like it more with the wood a bit darker color.The mosaics are beautiful.

Yee Haw!!!!!!!!!!!! It's finished. And I re did the medicene cabinet to boot!!! I no longer will be living on the bathroom floor!!! Outside I go!!
It was a long project but I am so happy I did it. The darker wood makes the rocks and agates look so much better...Sometimes things work out!! This was one of those times..
