Vanity Top Ideas Sign In/Join 
I have an antique sellers hoosier kitchen cabinet that I am going to use the bottom of for our vanity in our bathroom re-do. We plan on using a vessel sink on top and I don't know what type of a top to buy to carry out the vintage theme. We have a claw foot tub, and will be putting bead board half way up with molding. Any suggestions are welcome!

We are using the same tile used on the shower floor. The tiles are on a 12"x12" sheet, easy to trim for the drain and faucet holes...

I favor marble, as that is what was used on many such cabinets. But remember that whatever you use, you will have to drill a hole through it for the drain and faucets.
