The husband has been home all week and we did a little spontaneous bathroom remodel. It was a twenty-nine year old bathroom with all original fixtures. Today I am going to show you the makeover of the vanity cabinet. Here is the before. It is bad isn't it. Most homeowners would probably pitch it. But, we didn't plan any budget for this so we painted it.
I started with paint I already owned and this was Georgian Green a Benjamin Moore color. It just was too yellow, maybe for another project. I would love a chair this color.
I started to mix my own paint with gesso. You can read more about that here. This color was too dark for what I was wanting.
This is what I was wanting. This is a gray mixed with the above color.
Here is the finished cabinet. I distressed it a little and glazed it with a Valspar mocha glaze. I spray painted the hardware oil rubbed bronze. I'll put the paste wax on it later this week. It is still a little tacky since I put three coats on it.
This is the only picture I have of the cabinet in place for a before comparison. We have raised three boys and this was the one room that really took a beating.
So, it is looking much nicer. We are still caulking and painting trim. I will wait and show you the rest later. We did all of the work, including the drywall with a knockdown finish.
Thanks for stopping by.
