We are no where near finishing this project, but it is looking better. One step at a time, right? I decided today that since we are trying to be very budget conscious with the basement remodel that I should try to paint the bathroom vanity instead of replacing it. The cabinet was in pretty decent condition, but the sink had seem much better days. I got out the heavy duty cleaner, gloves, and a little elbow grease and set to work trying to revive it.
First of course, I had to take some pictures of the filthy sink! Just so you know, this was not just dirty, but stained, paint covered, and so much more. I used a heavy duty cleaner, a scraper, and a scouring pad to get it clean!!
And now for the cleaner….
The next step was to paint the cabinet. I decided to go with black as I thought it would look really nice with the paint color that I picked for the walls. At some point, I am going to pair it with a nice vanity mirror in black as well!
But, before I show you the after, you better see the before!
And now for the finished product!
In the end, I used paint that I already had, cleaner that I already had, and polyurethane (that I already had). What did I buy? A knob from Hobby Lobby that was 50% off and cost me $3.00!!!
