For example, antique bureaus and desks can be reworked to serve as the bathroom vanity, providing a uniquely stylish sink stand. You can also take the alternative choices such as many different types of objects as a vanity or sink, from an old, rustic wood cabinet to a stone baptismal font to a horse trough.
You can find these things in the countryside, flea market, or vintage furniture stores. It will need a little effort than searching modern things because most of the home improvement stores provide the modern design material and furniture.
