Measure the space that you have for your vanity. Order enough stock cabinets to fill the space. Also, if more storage is needed, consider ordering smaller cabinets to go on top of the vanity countertop.
Cut all cabinets to desired size/angle with circular saw to fit in the space. (Always wear eye protection when working with a circular saw.)
Lightly sand all outside surfaces of the cabinetry that will be stained.
Wearing rubber gloves to protect your skin, apply the wood stain with a clean fabric towel, wiping away excess as you go. Let dry overnight.
TIP: For easy application, use unfinished cabinetry so the stain adheres more easily to the surface.
Once the wood stain has dried, apply polyurethane with a foam brush and let dry.
Install the bottom vanity cabinets and secure to the back wall with a power drill.
Once the bottom cabinets are secure, lay the pre-cut granite countertop on top of the cabinets and seal underneath with silicone.
After the countertop is set, place the final two cabinets on top of each end of the vanity and secure to the back wall with a drill.
Frame out the top part of the vanity with oak 2x4s to create an apron for lighting above.
