Painting my Bathroom Vanity. Making my life a little prettier.
I decided that until we can completely renovate the bathroom, I will have to make do with what we have. Unfortunately that consists of a really ugly vanity, paneling on the walls, and pink and white tiles… and a gold shower door.
I previously painted the paneling white, added some decorative touches… and finally decided to paint the vanity. Here’s the ugly truth:
Repainting the vanity was my first “furniture” update. I have plenty of ideas of other items yawning their life away and need some sprucing up. Why not try it on something that isn’t staying for more than 4 years (I pray)
So, the first thing I did was remove the knobs and handles since the wood had finger grooves cut into them. We didn’t use the knobs. Then I decided to remove the extra panel in the middle to give me a more uniform vanity.
Then I added some wood filler to disguise the mess I made, waited a couple of hours, sanded them down then applied a layer of primer. Remember, I sanded the vanity first all over to assure the paint would stay. (It was a mess in there!)
After primer? Two coats of the beautiful green I chose.
What do you think?
