When our son left for college my husband and I put our blood, sweat and tears into our daughter’s bathroom remodel. We tore out the tile and the tub in a weekend. The remaining tiled shower, new shower glass door install, drywall, flooring took months and that was the just the decisions on tile, flooring and the bathroom vanity. We landed on a copy cat Pottery Barn Vanity Find. And, we saved a thousand dollars!
We finished the bathroom remodel project days before Thanksgiving; just in time for our daughter to arrive home (from Denver-12 miles away) to stay for the Thanksgiving week. The fun part of the bathroom remodel was finding a copy cat Pottery Barn Bathroom Vanity find. It was worth the time to finish an exhaustive search and a few trips to the big box stores.
Like many home-related purchases, my initial searche took me to the Pottery Barn website. Funny how that works!
I had my eye on this Pottery Barn Vanity. It was everything I wanted in color, size and a countertop.
But my daughter’s bedroom’s new purpose was to be a future guest bedroom and bath. My husband was not on board with Pottery Barn’s price tag for a bathroom that would be used infrequently.
In a rare moment, I totally agreed with his opinion on this purchase. It was a calculated decision because I knew I would have stronger opinions on price negotiations for our master bathroom remodel.

I took my online search in a different direction and searched for similar vanities at a different price point. I shared my search results with my husband and we both decided on this bathroom vanity from Lowes. With a price tag of $749.00, it was perfect for our runaway budget after the shower install. So many lessons learned when doing a DIY renovation.
Our vanity was slightly different from the cabinet setup, but the countertop and slatted shelf were the same. This copy cat bathroom vanity was functional, pretty, trendy and economical. The gray lightened up this windowless bathroom and was a nice update from the original oak builder grade vanity.
With a pretty new countertop (included with the vanity) I added these cute little canisters to store a few essentials.
