Well, I finally did it GIRLS!!! I painted my master bathroom vanity! It has only been 2 (maybe plus) years in the workings. Yes, I was dragging my feet BIG time on it. But, after I line the bottom of the vanity (see more on that below), I consider the Master Bathroom DONE. Which... hmmm... that may mean its the ONLY room I consider done in the entire house. That's kinda scary, but I guess normal for a DIY/crafting blogger :) I will do a post on the entire bathroom reveal in a couple of weeks.


Ready for a Before and After Photo?

This is the bathroom vanity now.

Here is the before... ok, I know a door is missing, it wasn't like that... I forgot to take a before photo before my husband started to take the doors off. Oops! AND, I know it looks a little messy in there. I plan to straighten that up soon, too, when I do the liner on the bottom of the vanity. It'll be a good time to take everything out and toss some things... plus, believe it or not, the other side of the vanity is really orderly!

So, are you ready for a little tutorial? It was pretty simple and I worked on it last Saturday and Sunday... a quick weekend project!



Paint
Brian and I went to Lowes on Friday evening, because I like to have all my ducks in a row for a painting project on Saturday morning. Ok, maybe I slept in... but, at least I had the paint! We used Valspar's Seashell Gray for the color, which is one of their lightest grays.


Untitled
I used Frog Tape and taped off everything... Frog Tape is the best! I don't remove the Frog Tape when the paint is wet, I just prime, paint and then my husband scores it with his pocket knife and it comes off easy peasy! Here you'll see I've applied 1 coat of primer to the vanity. I did 2 coats total of primer, with one hour of dry time in-between.

Then do the two coats of paint. I did 2 hours of dry time inbetween them. For the doors, you'll need to paint both sides, so it will take longer than the vanity.



Doors1
Hang the doors once they are dry. I bought new hinges for the doors, since the olds ones were black and not silver.


Knobs1
Put on the handles. These were so fun to pick out at Lowes and I love their long and sleek look compared to our old ugly handles!



And, here are some more photos for your pleasure!

This is the liner I purchased at Hobby Lobby that I'll be lining the bottom of the inside of the vanity with.
