Thank you. It's going to look like an old wash table. I guess I should have ask which legs. This is not the table top or bowl. They are just to give a better picture. I didn't know to use square or turned. All The pipes will be hidden either way.

Re: Under Window Sink.


Honestly, it looks pretty doofy either way. For starters, the windowsill ought to be considerably higher.

The sink is under the window because that was the best layout.I didn't want to change the window, not that I don't know how. There will be old looking cabinets on each side of the window. The side wall still has lap siding, this is where the mirror will hang. Also may use an arm mirror. It'll look good when it's finished. Maybe not modern but that's what I'm going for.

Impossible to tell without seeing more of the layout. In a remodel like this it is all about harmony. As you said "There will be old looking cabinets on each side of the window." and it totally depends on what they look like and how it blends in.

Re: Under Window Sink.


if you have old cabinets going next to the window, why not swap the sink for cabinet location?

You make a valid point. Even though I making the table & cabinets they need to flow. I'll do square tapered, the cab will be simpler fit.

My vote also. proportions don't jive. Go with the two legs but shorting the depth to pull it back to the window.
and as long as we're all being designers, the floor covering sucks. add more drywall mud to achieve the look

Your right the depth is not correct. I made that table top for my miter saw. Just used as a guide. I really like the look of 2 legs more. I'm hoping 1 or 2 shelves will improve the 4 legs as it provides towel space. Was thinking knock down on the floor. maybe use colored mud too.

You don't need four legs for drawers/shelves.
