Vanity (Fail)

So I just got back from work a bit early (but I got a ride into town, saving me over an hour long walk otherwise). I got quite a lot done on the vanity. I have the left side done (a "shaker" panel side), I have the face frame done, and I also just finished gluing-up the two triple panel doors. Basically, all the complicated and time consuming jobs on it are done.

What's left to do:

- Cut a back, bottom, and right side.
- Route and cut the toekick (the skirt or baseboard that wraps around the base).
- Fit the doors.
- Mount hardware/doors.
- Assemble everything.
- Finishing.

Now you're probably wondering why this post is a "fail" post. Well, I took all kinds of nice photos of the vanity in progress, but I went and forgot my camera at work (which will bother the hell out of me for the entire weekend since I feel naked without it).

So yeah, you guys will have to wait until Monday night before I can post photos.


  1. I could offer to give you a ride out there tomorrow afternoon, but I don't think I could give you a ride back (I'm being picked up before I go to a bachelorette). :(

  2. Although I could bring you around noon as I have to go back into town at 2:30 to pick up my server.
    But I'm not sure if your boss would be ok with you coming over?

    1. Thanks for the offer, but it's not a big deal. I'll just get it on Monday.

      Also, are you in town? We could do yard sales (I dunno if my mom is going this week or not). That's assuming you want to get up early, etc.

  3. Sorry I couldn't this weekend. Crazy busy. I had a bachelorette last night, and now I'm back home preparing for my TB party. :S

    1. No worries. I hope you guys have a blast at the party. Wish I could be there. Angie offered a ride with Pierre, but I still would be home way too late. It's too bad it wasn't on a Sat night instead.
