Free (Almost) Cabinet Fix Up

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!!!
