Why settle for a boring store-bought vanity when there are countless repurposed alternatives instead? Whether you have a family heirloom collecting dust in the garage or enjoy scouring antique shops for treasures, you can create the vanity of your dreams. Here are 8 one-of-a-kind vanity ideas to inspire you:

1. This bathroom was inspired by Tulum - a Caribbean coastal region of Mexico. The vanity is made from gorgeous reclaimed wood, which features a live edge, and perfectly complements the turquoise color palette. Via Justina Blakeney, Instagram

2. Dressers in the bathroom offer uniqueness and charm, for a fraction of the price of ordinary vanities. The soft pink paint and scalloped design of this project transform this master bath into a romantic Parisian powder room.

Another benefit of repurposing old dressers as vanities, aside from the endless color possibilities, is the added storage. After accommodations are made for the plumbing, just think about all the leftover storage space provided by the dresser drawers. Via Brianna Heiligenthal, as seen on Wit & Delight

3. If the dreamy Parisian bathroom pictured above isn't quite your style, maybe you'd enjoy paying homage to France in a different way - with a repurposed wine barrel serving as your vanity. Oak is a beautiful material that contributes to a rustic, countryside theme. Via John Koering, DIY Network

4. This "washup on wheels" serves a quaint and classic style. If you're a fan of cycling (whether that be bicycling or upcycling), this vanity brings some seriously fun vibes to the bathroom. Via Benjamin Bullins, DIY Network

5. As seen in this glamorous London-based hotel, sometimes less is more. Exposed plumbing and a chic minimalist style set the tone for an intriguing design in this grand suite bathroom. Via Artist Residence Hotel

6. End tables offer sleek and smart solutions for small bathrooms. As vanities, they take up minimal space. And if they have a built-in bottom shelf, you'll even have a spot to stack bath linens or storage bins. Via Kohler Co.

7. If you need a lot of counter space, media cabinets or TV stands serve as the perfect vanities. Some even have glass-front doors that stylishly showcase organizational baskets, decorations, or bath linens. Via Better Homes & Gardens

8. Repurposing an antique sewing table brings immense character to the bath and is a clever way to ensure your vanity is the focal point of the room. Via Clark Dugger
