Bathroom Vanity Makeover

I don’t like stock cabinetry.  However, replacing my large master bath vanity isn’t in the budget.

I thought about staining it darker but I didn’t think that would go with the rest of the room.  I decided to take the doors off, sand everything, and paint it all white.

To save a little more money I just sprayed the hinges white.  They don’t show that much so I didn’t see the need to replace them.

This is a time consuming process.  It involves sanding, painting with Kilz primer, painting a glossy white top coat, and then a clear coat but the end result is worth it.  It was definitely faster and easier then when I painted my kitchen cabinets (THREE times!!  My first house, my husband’s house when we got married, and the new house we purchased together)

I’m thrilled with the final result.  My bathroom looks so much brighter.  The vanity was the only brown thing in the room and really stood out.  Now it blends with the room so much better.

Now I just need to have the vanity top sprayed like I did in my kids bathroom.

  1. I must have missed your post about spraying the kids counter . I am wondering where you find this service or where I should look. I hate my green counter top in the bathroom.
