a little work but big in my heart!
It was the table of wood work from my grand father died a long time ago.
I receive it from my mother and I transformed for my bathroom. (recycling wood! ;-))
A little thought for my great grand father everytime!
Al the best,
Oncle Jules

A very cool looking vanity. Your Grandfather would be very proud of your accomplishment here.

That is great. I like those type of sinks anyway. That made it that much more awsome!

Great Job Oncle. It is a memento from a previous time and person. I do like it.

It seems that the older I get the more sentimental I get about such things. Hope this brings pleasant thoughts of your Grandfather. Thanks for sharing.

Seems as though we all get more sentimental as we age. Even us Macho men. Great project, and beautiful purpose.
