Claw foot bathtub and vanity bureau installation
We bought this tub through Sears, its made of fiberglass and acrylic. A few months after we bought it we found another style at Rona, which, for $200 more was better styled and thicker walls. Almost like a slipper foot style, but I was committed to this tub, so it stays.
This drop in sink we picked up at Home Depot for a bargain at $79.00
This is the old vanity we bought at an auction for $75. The oval template came with the drop in sink. Simply align it where we wanted the sink to be, drill a starter hole and cut out the oval with a jig saw. You’ll see the holes we drilled for the taps and spout. We wanted something to go with the faucets that came with the claw foot tub and had a vintage look to them. Ironically the taps cost more than the sink and vanity combined.
You can see in the photo the pencil lines drawn onto the drawer bottom. I simply placed a carpenter’s square into the hole to act as a guide while I made the markings. I traced the oval completely then I visualized the drawer being pulled open with the sink in place. That’s when I realized the back portion of the drawer will have to be cut out, that’s why you see the straight pencil line which I marked in afterwards. I’d like to be able to save the drawers for some useage. I’m not sure how the drawer will function when being pulled out but I’m thinking I might add a full extension drawer slide to solve that.
Now, to complete the installation.
