Start by removing your mirror if possible and taping off the cabinet with painter's tape.










Before this vanity was dark and heavy - now it's light and brights so much brightness to the space!

Next, empty out the cabinet and sand it. Then, wipe it off with a soft cloth. You can also remove the doors.

I decided I wanted to keep the insides of the doors wooden so I taped those off.

Then, I added a drop-cloth to protect my floor and began painting! I used chalk paint but you could prime and use another kind of paint if desired. Make sure to get into all of the grooves of the cabinet.

Next, I removed my knobs and painted the doors. After the paint had dried I peeled off the tape.

After that, paint with chalk paint - add another coat if necessary and let it dry. You could also use primer and another kind of paint if you don't want to use chalk paint.


When it's dry peel off the tape.

    I think it looks nice but have 2 questions. Were you going to paint the stool in the shower to match it and why did you paint the hinges to the vanity?

      I like the hinges painted. They would stand out too much if not. I think the bench in her shower may be made of teak therefore you wouldn’t want to paint it. Not sure if any kind of paint but oil base would stand up to that much water.

    Looks great. I actually have the same sink and from Home Depot or Lowe’s. Glad you painted the hinges☺️
