Updating 60's Bathroom Vanity


Had a vanity, but not the money for new one. Decided to paint vanity and counter top.
Removed faucet and gave the vanity a good cleaning.
Taped off vanity. Applied 2-3 coats of Rustolium counter top paint.
Home Depot customized the paint since the product did not offer white.
Painted vanity base Paris Gray (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) and then coated/sealed with Annie Sloan clear soft wax.
With craft acrylic paint, paint brushes, blending brush and turkey/duck feathers painted faux marble. Once paint was dry put on 3-5 coats of a rub-on high gloss sealer (Minwax)
Added new faucet and vanity was completed.
Total project came in under $250.00 and I am very pleased with the end results.

    I live in a mobile home and the counters and sinks are all one unit with the sinks being cracked. Would something like this work on this kind of counters.

      It will work but won't fix the cracked sink! You need to replace it. 😣

    This is a wonderful idea!! Thank you for sharing it. I would like to know what did you use to either sand or whatever you may have done to the countertop to make the paint stick/absorb?

      Do not have to sand when using Rustolium counter top paint. Clean surface well with rubbing alcohol let dry and paint. Hopes this helps.

    It has been over two years everything is holdiong up well. Because of water issue, vanity, I made sure to put several coats of sealer. In the future if I do a project like this again I might consider doing an expoxy. I hop this helps.

    the vanity turned out really nice. have you considered painting the blue tiles? i see that you have them as a backsplash and along the walls.
