The Vanity is coming together

This is our custom 8 foot long vanity we had made by Rory's old boss and custom cabinet maker. Rory had said he would build it with him but he surprised us and had all the work done for free, we just payed materials so he was a huge help. His cabinet shop is amazing we owe him big time for the favor and the final product in our bathroom remodel will be excellent.
He built all the boxes and drawer bottoms out of pre-finished birch wood with top of the line drawer slides and hinges. The fronts are made out of paint grade poplar that I have been painting for a few weeks.

Here is the cabinet put together without the pulls installed. The hinges for the drawer faces and doors still need some final adjustments to get them perfectly spaced and level. I love the way this new piece of furniture looks aged and distressed. It will go really nicely with our hand painted tile sinks and counters.

This is a close up of the cabinet door and the aged glazing two tone look I was going for came out great for my first attempt.

Here is our new book shelf with the books in place. I got the books off the floor and out of a box just in time for the vanity to move into the house. We'll get it all organized eventually!
