Painting a Bathroom Vanity

~Give Your Vanity a Fresh Look~

Today I’m sharing my how-to for painting a bathroom vanity. I love the fresh new look of the vanity in my Coastal Bathroom Makeover. Painting it was easy and it looks so much better. Now it fits with the vision I had for the bathroom.

Here’s the before…

Painting a Bathroom Vanity

The first problem was that I didn’t want the dark wood. This bathroom is at our beach house and I want the decor to be light. The second issue I had with this vanity is that it’s primarily used by my teenage son and it just doesn’t scream, “I’m a teen boy’s bathroom!”

A change was needed, so it was paint to the rescue!

Step 1: Prime

My go to primer is Zinsser Cover Stain Primer. First, I removed all the hardware and doors from the vanity. I applied the primer with a roller brush on the doors and an angled brush on the trim and grooves of the vanity. I did not sand the vanity because it didn’t have a really glossy finish. The primer itself did the trick. *Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions of use and clean-up.

Step 2: Paint

 I used Rust-oleum Protective Enamel in Gloss White. It comes in oil-based, but I used the latex version. I really didn’t want the dry time or the clean up that goes along with oil based paint. Again, I used a roller brush on the doors and flat surfaces and a brush on the trim and grooves. I gave the vanity two coats of paint to give it great coverage.

Step 3: Seal

Finally, I applied one coat of Minwax Polycrylic Protective Finish in semi-gloss. I simply brushed it on the vanity and doors.

 

I made sure to allow proper drying time between each step. Each product tells you how long you should wait between coats.

Once everything dried and cured, I put the doors and hardware back on.
