Installing second bathroom sink

How difficult is it to install a second bathroom sink? currently we have plumbing for one sink right in the middle of a 68" vanity area. How would we go about installing plumbing for another sink or is this a job best left to the pros? If so (pro help) how much does this sort of job cost? We have all the materials to patch and texture walls so we are not worried about that added expense.

The vanity area is seperate from the toilet and shower area (think 70's hotel chic) with no toilets or showers directly in front of the sink area.

Good morning,

Plumbing is not my strong suit, but I think this is pretty easily done. You will need to replace your vanity top, of course, so that your sinks will be centered.

The 2 sinks can be tied into the drain before it goes into the wall (or floor).

Each sink will need a trap before tying into the main drain.
The water supply lines will have to be tee'd to add the second sink, or I think you can get dual outlet shutoff valves to replace the existing ones.
