A DIY project for a bathroom vanity makeover…
BEFORE: as you can see we started with a builders grade vanity.
So here was the dilemma:
– update the guest bath vanity and quick!
How it happened ~
1. Removed vanity top.
2. Raised the height with a 3″ strip of oak around all 4 sides of the existing vanity, glued and braced the pieces to the existing vanity.
3. Removed the door fronts.
4. Sanded & stained the entire vanity until the color was just deep enough, stain from Sherwin-Williams.
5. Added cabinet hardware (door pulls), purchased from Restoration Hardware.
6. Reinstalled the door fronts.
7. Installed the granite top, sink and faucet. All items were in-stock pieces purchased from Lowes.
8. Added a mirror, purchased at Home Goods.
9. Repainted bathroom, purchased paint from Restoration Hardware, color Latte.
I love how the vanity turned out, it was easy to do and cost effective.
my paint tip ~
If you are looking for paint and have not checked out Restoration Hardware paint colors its worth the time and effort. Their paint colors are just simply beautiful. I was very happy with the Latte it paired perfectly with the granite top we purchased from Lowes. Also, when selecting a paint for a bathroom check with the manufacturer for the best finish option.
Make it a DIY weekend!! – Enjoy ~ nancy
