Picture of Hack an inexpensive granite table into a bathroom vanity
This is my first instructable. Hopefully it will help you save a couple of bucks.

We have been remodeling our bathroom and needed a new sink and counter top. We really wanted a granite top but just didn't have the money to spend $300+ to get one. So this was our solution.

Step 1: Secure a table

The first thing we did was to search the local online ads for a granite table. We found one with a broken leg for $50. I thought this is a real bargain so I called to find out more about it and the guy really wanted it gone and said that If I came and got it I could have it for $20. Great start!

Sounds like a good find.

Never thought about getting used granite. We wanted a granite look in our kitchen, but we were already way over budget. We ended up with white and black tile counter tops all except for one area. We found a remnant piece if black granite that could be cut down to 2x4 feet to fit one area. We call it "accent." We also found a remnant piece of red granite which we used as a new fireplace surround and mantle. These pieces were in the trash bin, so keep your eyes open for good deals.
