Beautiful PieceThis is a very nice looking vanity. Seems to be very well made. However it took nearly a month to receive it. The pipes going to it need to placed a bit higher on the wall than is considered normal so as not to have to damage the piece when installing.

Great Vanity, Don't be Mislead by its PriceThis is a FANTASTIC vanity, don't be mislead by the price. If you like the styling of it I truly believe you'll be happy with the construction, and this from folks who went into the purchase with a fair level of trepidation having never laid eyes on one before we assembled our 2. Subsequently, as I've looked at other vanities in our travels I feel we got a bargain, as we were looking at >2x this price for lesser quality products. Our installation will be in a few months and I'll update then as needed.
Our only two dislikes are the distressed appearance and the drawer glides. The distressing is just a bit much and is a bit too repetitive/uniform. The drawer glides are lower-end construction, but they're metal roller in style. By design the glides do help close the drawer over the last ~1", and I think they'll work acceptably. I added an after-market soft-close hinge adapter to each door (~$5/door), which work wonderfully. They seem to be designed for an over-lap frame construction, but worked well on these inset vanity doors and are not at all noticeable on the upper side of the hinge-side of the doors.
The vanity construction is almost entirely solid wood, with the 1 exception of the drawer bottoms. It's suitably heavy-duty for a stone top (we're storing ours on there), and the feet are adjustable to accommodate leveling. There is no back to the piece if that's an issue for you, but plumbing should be easy. The two bottom drawers are not full depth.
Assembly took me ~1.5hrs/vanity, and that was using a drill to drive any appropriate the screws (mainly the drawer assemblies). Much of the assembly uses cam-lock and cam-screws similar to other owner-assembled furniture, but the assembled vanities seemed quite strong and stable. The hardest part of the assembly by far was putting the glides into the cabinet. They simply snap into the back, and the front use 1 screw each. There's a hard-to-spot mark on the cabinet for the where the screw should go and to help start the screw. However, on a few of the drawers I had to spring-out the front and back of the vanity to get the glide-screw to align with the mark (which seemed necessary to get the drawer-fronts to line up with the vanity front). I was fortunate to have a clamp that reversed and made this easy, but just something to consider with this step. I also found that the back of the slides are left/right adjustable, and you use that to get the drawer fronts to sit flush with the vanity front. On one of these adjustments I had to put a screw into the wood to keep its position as the drawer would otherwise shift it.
Note that we're also installing the matching mirror, and our plan is to leave off the bottom shelf from that, as we think it looks good without. If you're capable with ripping wood, it would also be easy to cut-back the width of the shelf and make appropriate counter-sunk holes to mount a thinner version - no finishing necessary.
