Powder Room Vanity Update

For the most part our main floor powder room was updated and looked nice. The only thing that needed to be done was an update to the vanity. A new vanity was not necessary, just a coat of paint on the current vanity along with some new hardware was just the sprucing up that was needed. I had this project in mind last year and already had the paint. I got a small sample size of paint for a different project and decided it would be perfect for my update. My sister-in-law was in town for a weekend visit and she helped me with painting this and another project I'll reveal soon.

Here are a few pictures of the bathroom beforehand. It's a tight little space that is a bit difficult to photograph.

I did a few test patches of some colors I had downstairs to make sure I liked my choice.

After deciding on the paint color I wanted, I took the doors and all of the hardware off. Then I put a coat of my favorite primer Zinger Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer. (Affiliate Link) Rust-Oleum 2004 Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 White Water-Based Interior/Exterior Primer Sealer, 1-Quart . I use it on all of my furniture painting projects. It allows your actual paint color to stick and blocks other stains that might seep up through from old wood or laminate. After the primer, I applied two coats of the paint color. Always use two coats, you'll often regret one coat, but you'll never regret the second coat. After the paint had dried well, I installed the new hardware and rehung the doors.

And presto, here it is all finished up! I love how it just brings the whole room into this century. It certainly wasn't a big hard project, but it makes a big impact.
