We’ve seen bathroom vanities from the 1950s and 1960s that were covered in patterned laminates, but today, most designers and other folk shy from making such a big statement / taking this design road less taken. So kudos to Barry, who used one of our favorite laminate patterns — Wilsonart’s Betty (a stock laminate, so you should be able to get it at a great price) — to cover the outside of his new bathroom vanity.
Pam: I thought you might like this 2015 project. 1952 original tiles re-grouted. Modwall Dots floor over original tile mosaic. Wilsonart Betty used on vanity and Formica #5349-58 on the countertop. Johnny Mica from Long Island made the vanity. The dimensions were the same as the Formica vanity I had made in 1990.
Thank you, Barry — nicely done!
