I knew that I wanted something different but functional. At first, I wanted something like an old farm sink but that just wasn't in my budget. After searching for sinks online I came across the rectangular vessel sink. Faucets were my next concern and I wanted an old-fashioned look and found just the right ones. The next thing to create was a unique base to capture the look I wanted. The best place to look for something unique was our area, Flea Market. At first, I was looking for old planks of wood but then I found some old barn doors and chose one to use.
All the old, original hardware was removed first. After deciding on the size needed for the vanity top, some of the boards were removed to get the correct width for the top. Next, the remaining piece was cut to the correct length of the top. A piece of particle board was cut to fit under the barn door for added support. It was attached to the base before the process of adding the resin began.
I have worked with ETI resin in smaller projects but this was my first attempt to do something so large. It was a learning experience for sure! I did make a few errors in prepping for the project. To cover the door to the thickness I wanted, I had to do several pours of the resin.

I love the results! The resin brought out all the interesting imperfections of the wood to give the top its very unique look.
