Vanity woes. Clueless.

I married for love, not for his handyman skills and now desperately need some advice on an inexpensive bathroom vanity update...

Because the base cabinet is still in decent shape (as are the gliders and hinges) I was hoping to simply replace the vanity doors and - here's my dilemma - replace the drawers which are completely falling apart inside. I'm not sure where to go to get new drawers made to fit an existing cabinet base. Any suggestions? (When I think custom cabinet maker, I thing cha-ching $$$$ - and a major surcharge for such a small job.)

I'm not looking for anything elaborate - something farily plain (white) and inexpensive (melamine, thermal?).

Any suggestions re. the type of business I should look to? I'm completely lost and fustrated. :confused: I'm in Kitchener-Waterloo should anyone have specific recommendation in this area.

I'd like to do this vanity update "on the cheap" and was really hoping not to have to look at an entire custom vanity replacement. Without getting into all the gory details, "off-the-shelf" vanities (I.e. Mills Pride at Home Depot, etc.) do not seem to be an option because of the idiotic layout of our bathroom.
