Fun and Funky Unicorn Spit Makeover
Gave my bathroom sink and toilet seat a much needed makeover using Unicorn Spit
I'm a newbie at blogging so I don't have a before picture of my sink. To give you an idea, it was a gross off white color and stained. I promise to do better in my future posts. I'll be posting many more. After cleaning my sink out, I dried it completely and put one coat of the chalk paint. I let it dry for several hours.
Next, is the fun part. I started off with Zia Teal. I put dabs of it all over the sink and then with a dry ( make sure it's dry) sponge brush, I drug the stain in random directions. Waited for it to dry completely
Using the same technique, I moved on with Blue Thunder and let it dry.
Last but not least, I added Midnight Blackness and after drying over night, added 3 layers of the sealer.
I used the same technique with my toilet seat (using a brand new one). I will slowly continue on with the rest of the bathroom when I get time and funds ( owner won't reimburse me but doesn't mind me doing the upgrades) The toilet seat pictures look darker because they were taken early in the morning before it was light out.
Enjoyed the project?

Super excited to see the outcome!!!
I can't seem to find that brand of marine varnish and on Amazon I see water-based and oil-based. Was yours water-based or oil-based?
How long has it held up?
That is a great transformation... I'm thinking about doing something similar, but with epoxy... although I haven't worked out the best way to stop the epoxy from reacting to gravity?
