Ikea hack DIY bathroom sink base

Oh, Ikea how I love thee!! This sink base is SO easy and simple to put together! I wanted something open and rustic for my powder bath since it’s a small room. I did black shiplap on the back wall and needed a soft rustic element. I had been looking for a while for something open with possibly slats on the bottom so I could do a cute rustic crate or something. I saw this BBQ stand at Ikea (click here) and fell in love! Not only was it the perfect look but it was the perfect size and it was only $89 bucks!! Whoo hoo! I snatched it up and was also hoping to land the stainless steel top that is an option to go with it, but it was out of stock and I had no luck getting it for the next couple months 🙁 So I had to improvise on the top. I purchased a large butcher block counter top from lumber liquidators (click Here). I decided to go with the cheapest one they had in stock because I knew I was going to stain it and and it was going in my powder bath, laundry room and office and I really didn’t want to spend a whole lot on this. I purchased the 9 ft long slab on sale for $250 and was able to get 5 counter tops out of it!! Steal of a deal!!! We sanded and painted the stand because I wanted it black. Then we set the stand in place in the bathroom and had to cut it down about 3 inches because I knew our farm sink would stick up about 3-4 inches and I wanted it to be a comfortable bathroom sink height. I purchased this farm sink ( here) and the faucet (here) Btw… DON’T forget to get a VESSEL sink faucet if you are installing a farm sink, a regular faucet will sit too low!  After cutting it down, we measured for the width (I wanted a 1 inch overhang) and I had my husband cut it. I then stained it with the stain we used for our banisters and cubbies. After that, we placed the sink in the middle, my husband cut the hole for it and faucet and we had the plumber install both. I found a really cute crate at home goods to put underneath the sink so I could display T.P and cloths and bam! Done!
