Poured Concrete Bathroom Vanity Top

One down, one to go.

I'm not going to bore you with all the details of tedious DIY, so I won't be giving you complete step by step instructions on how to pour concrete bathroom vanity tops.

I wouldn't want you to build and pour your own tops based solely on what I say anyhow, what if I forgot to include some important instruction and your project turned out like crap?

I'll just give you the basics and what *we* do that gives us the results we want.  There is plenty of expert advice on the web, you don't need mine, mostly because I'm not really into writing a 'how to' cement book and the fact that I believe experts often tend to over complicate things.

Concrete bathroom Counter Top,

Even with a condensed version, there is still lots of steps to include.

I've already showed you how the shape for the sink is sculpted from foam {here}, and told you Brawn used melamine to build the counter top forms.

He has used regular scrap wood too, it just depends on what he is pouring with the cement, and I guess his mood at the time.

For two bathroom vanity tops he had to obviously make two forms.

I see he also used a table I recently painted to hold the forms.  Hmmm.......

His mix for this counter consisted of a 50/50 blend of counter top mix and sakrete.  This is the first time he has used a blend.

It's still cold around here, so work takes place in the heated garage - with a wheelbarrow, water and the concrete mix.

He hand mixes it with whatever he grabs first, which in this case happens to be a cheap plastic mini snow shovel.  In his words, "it was used for no other reason except it was handy".

It's mixed till he has the consistency he recognizes. If there is an absolute rule about that consistency, he probably doesn't follow it.

That trough looking part on the left, is the cement apron that is in front of the sink, the mountain in the middle is the underside of the sink.

The whole thing gets flipped over, so what you are looking at in these photos is the underneath part.

The cement is moved, smoothed, and I don't know what all, and then it has to cure.

He will be doing this twice, once for each counter top that goes in the Jack & Jill bathroom - that was really a Jill & Jill bathroom, and now is going to be a Jack & Jack bathroom.  Remember?

Any plumbing that needs to be roughed in, has to be done before it is poured, so there is PVC pipe where the faucets go as well as the sink drain.

Here is another look at the Selia Pfister Faucet that I'm anxious to pair with these concrete counters.  If you are in need of new faucets check these ones out.

Selia Pfister Faucet,

Can you get an idea of the look I'm going for here?  The rustic cement counters paired with the sleek brushed nickle faucets.

The counter top cured for a a bit over a week right in the form, and it will continue to cure outside the form until we get the floor down in the bathrooms so the wood vanity frame that the counter sets into/on, can go in on top of the floor.  Got it?

Concrete bathroom Counter Top,

The photo above shows the front concrete sink apron.  There is a sealer that will be brushed on, but no stain, I like it just how it is..... natural.

If you want to read about the demo, faucets, etc., on the Jack & Jill bath go {here}, {here} & {here}.
