I got a foreclosure where the previous jerk took one of the bathroom vanity drawers. This house will eventually become a rental property, so looking to spend as little as possible. I have been looking online and can't find a replacement drawer front. Will I need to take this to a cabinet maker? I'm considering having someone recreate another drawer left in the vanity or just create a drawer front that I can glue/nail down as a false drawer to save some money.
Any suggestions to how to get this done as cheap as I can?
@Scott Stevens If it's just the drawer, it shouldn't cost much to reproduce. Take one to a cabinet maker and get another one made. You will need to take measurements of the drawer opening and the type of drawer slides used in the vanity. Take some pictures. That should be pretty easy and costs a lot less than replacing the vanity. Just replacing with a dummy front wouldn't be good enough for the tenants I want.
Might be less expensive to just replace the whole vanity if you have to get one made. Getting the front to match will be necessary to look good.
replacement drawer fronts, many styles.

This happened to me with a cabinet door missing in the kitchen. Looked everywhere until I finally took one off the other cabinets and had a cabinet maker copy it - $75 oak exact copy. I (my wife) had to stain and poly it : )
