With Earth day coming next week, we thought about showing some great ideas on how designers are re-purposing old furniture into some beautiful vanity pieces. Today's marketplace has many fabulous custom bathroom sinks available and trying to find just the right vanity to accompany it can be a bit like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Many designers are turning to their local antique dealer and/or flea market rummaging stalls for that distinguished chest or table that they can re-purpose into a current look. The look of well worn piece is hard to fabricate, therefore getting a antique piece is a great option and warms up the space.

This charming vessel sink looks so chic with the old wooden table. The contrast of materials makes the sink really stand out.

The apron front on this antique side table does a great job of hiding plumbing and the bottom shelf is great for storing towels and soaps .
