Ikea Lillangen Vanity with Dalskar Faucet

Ikea Lillangen vanity | udandi.com

The Ikea Lillangen vanity with Dalskar faucet is the perfect replacement for a pedestal sink because at less than 24″ it fits in he given space, offers storage space that a pedestal cannot and with it’s base, it straddles the vent.

IKEA’s LILLÅNGEN vanity and sink, which comes with hooks, a soap dish and tray but I am not using at this time, requires knowledge of the metric system, which your American-built home supply lines are not, so you’ll need to do some rigging. In my experience, the local big box home improvement stores cannot help you, but locally Ace Hardware was the place!

I was so excited about my new sink that I took a photo before the baseboard and were were installed.

Why Ikea Lillagen?

It started with painting my bathroom walls, then I decided how hard could it be to change the vanity? In an old house that does not have shutoff valves at the sink or in the basement? A bigger project than you think.

Oh and then I found out the pipes are not good and need replacing. Add in a pedestal sink that was caulked to the wall, which needed new drywall so while those two areas needing fixing how about ripping out the built-in medicine cabinet and drywall and mud that? Sure!

Not to mention a Swedish sink in an American house. Now, you understand why I took a photo when I did not have the baseboard back in?!

The finishing touch is that I took a photo of a beach house while on vacation that will be hung above the toilet, which is also going to be replaced. Hope it just takes a weekend.

    Wow! Your new vanity looks great. I can’t believe all that gunk that was in your pipes. We’ve been looking at the Ikea vanities. We have a pedestal sink in our half bath that we want to replace. It’s on our long list of home improvement projects….. Keep up the great work. Can’t wait to see pics from your next project.
