Alternatively titled "The Evolution of an Oak Vanity", this builder-grade vanity goes through a brief shabby chic phase before finally settling into a barnwood door-inspired groove!  Check out both "afters" below.

Inspired by a rustic (and super expensive) barnwood vanity she spied in a catalog, Whitney from The Rooster and The Hen decided to turn her ho-hum oak vanity into something marvelous -- less than a year after attempting this quick-fix, shabby chic makeover (which Whitney refers to as a "disaster").

Determined to finally do it right, Whitney took her barnwood inspiration to the next level by adding cedar planking to the existing vanity.  Some handmade doors and a few coats of a rich Walnut stain sealed the deal.  Check out how she did it over on The Rooster and The Hen!

So Curbliers, what do you think of these makeovers?  Which version gets your vote?

Mikey - I agree completely. We have a couple cookie-cutter vanities that I'm itching to do something, anything to!

great job - but I really liked the shabby chic look, even if it was a "disaster" - either are excellent treatments for a horribly dated bathroom in a suburban cookie-cutter development.
