Weekend DIY project: Replace your bathroom vanity

Are you looking for something to do in your spare time? For homeowners, a weekend hobby may include fixing up the garden and planting new flowers and plants. For those who are handier around the home, a Saturday probably revolves around renovating the patio or coordinating a new addition to a room. If you're looking to makeover your bathroom, installing a brand new bathroom vanity could be a great DIY project that can be finished within the span of a weekend.

This might sound like quite an undertaking due to its sheer size, but installing a bathroom vanity is actually not as complicated as one might think. However, you do need a friend or two to help you carry the furniture into the room. Once you've removed the old bathroom vanity, it's only a matter of positioning the new fixture and aligning it to the studs and plumbing underneath before the job is done.

Of course, securing the bathroom vanity onto the wall and the countertop onto the frame is very important task that should be completed properly. Using the right tools, like an electric drill with a screw bit as well as the right caulking and sealant products, will ensure that your DIY weekend turns out to be a success.
