Faux Finishing a Laminate Sink Cabinet


Our upstairs master en suite is quite small. Small enough that we have to have a small sink and sink cabinet out of necessity. We chose a sink and cabinet from Ikea but longed for a cabinet with more character than the stock, white, laminate cabinet available at Ikea.

This was what our sink cabinet looked like before.

I attached trim to the cabinet doors to achieve a shaker style.

I then primed the cabinet using my favorite Zinsser primer. This is the key to getting paint to stick to laminate furniture.

I then faux painted the cabinet to achieve the weathered vintage look I desired.

When I was finished I added two mercury glass door knobs.
