Cherry wood floating sink

A nice bathroom redo from Denis.

He says, “I used a Hollviken sink but created my own floating counter with cherry wood.

Here is the bathroom before to show the uglyness.

And here are 2 photos at different angles of the sink.

    Hey Jules, killer job on the floating vanity. I’d love to know your actual plans on how to build this. Please post. Thanks.

    Huge improvement! Congrats on the upgrade. I’m using your floating counter strategy for a hollviken myself.

    Looks good, but I really liked your old bathroom.

    Huh? To each his own, I guess. I would rip out the new one and rebuild the old one. The new one looks like Dracula’s. Sharp angles, tub that looks like a coffin. I find it cold and austere. The wood floor is nice but the rest is definitely a downgrade. Ah, well… beauty is in the eye of the beholder. All the old bathroom really needed was a big ol spa tub… and the light. But if it makes you happy, then be happy!

    This looks great! I wonder what kind of bathtub is that that goes so well with the sink. Any info?

    Wow! So much better! Good job :)

    I agree with Archie…uhhh, I don’t see what was wrong with the old style, and would definitely call it far from “uglyness.” The old style had some character, some color, some flavor. I loved the colors, the bathtub “step,” the plant (plants in all rooms!!!), the hanging light, the mirror, the tile…RIP nice bathroom.

    It pretty easy, just make a box with 3/4 plywood with any finish you like but the secret to have no screw showing is “The Kreg® Mini Pocket Hole Jig” great and strong to screw it from the back.

    A very nice job.

    I would love to see the plans for this. I think a sink like that would look great in my guest bathroom.

  13. Archie says:

    Nicely done, though personally I like the old look better :)

  14. Michele says:

    That is a beautiful bathroom!

  15. Jen says:

    Bravo! That is one good-looking bathroom remodeling. Very inspiring!

    I really like the results of this hack. I’ve been wanting to do something very similar. Any chance of getting some instructions or a step-by-step guide of some kind for this?
