Had an old house that needed the bathroom redoing, so I ripped out the old gungy vanity unit and made one from New Guinea Rosewood to the same dimensions and shape as the original chipboard one, added a mirror, painted the walls, added the architrave and picture rail. Redid the tiles on the splashback. Also ripped out the toilet suite and the bath., took then downstairs and thoroughly cleaned them and then reinstalled them.
Second pic is just before installation of the vanity.. after painting.
Vanity and the mirror frame was made of New Guinea Rosewood.. first time I had used “nice” timber.
Also did the plumbing but don’t tell anyone.

Looks Sweet. Ya did a good job… Mine was a nightmare.. water damaged floor unseen under vanity, Walls plastered “around” vanity top thus sealing it to the wall (think unsliding dove tail), no replacement floor tile. The walls were not square.. 1927 house.

It wasn’t all smooth sailing with the rest of the house [ built 1936 and moved to new site].. sold it and bought a new one.. no character but no work either,.

Looks great. If you don’t mind I am having a Debbie Travis moment. I don’t know how large this bathroom is but if you paint those boards on the walls white you will really open up the space and highlight the woodwork on the frame, window casing and vanity. Of course, if the boards are not pine please disregard!

Wall boards are pine and were painted white.. but we chose maroon ss the main color and above the picture rail at 7’ light grey. we went for meranti for the architrave.
A very small bathroom but all in all worked very well ,., long gone now,, sold it nearly 8 years ago.

I gut em.
I hate bathrooms so dealing with anything old just makes it not worthwhile.

Bigger is faster and cheaper.
