Sorry for the delay in posts. One of my boys had my phone while he was sitting on the toilet and well you can imagine what happened next. So I did not have a phone for a few days to take pictures. I am excited though to share my latest projects.
The first project I have been working on started out as a major Pinterest fail but luckily I was able to fix it with an old method I have used before and I love how it turned out.
So I saw on Pinterest that some people spray painted their counter top it seemed like an easy quick way to update the bathroom vanity so I gave it a try. It turned out to be a mess that didn't cover and just stuck up the whole house even with the bathroom window open and fan going. I do not recommended spray painting indoors! Since spray painting did not work I decided to go back to an old method used before to get a faux granite look. so using white paint, black paint and Minwax Polycrylic I created granite look counter and I also painted the vanity base the same color as my kitchen cabinets (with Behr Classic Silver) the doors and drawers using the custom matched paint by Home Depot that I used to paint my dining room and some other decor items around my house.
Here is a link from a previous post on how to do the faux granite:Another Painted Counter top A few changes though: In the link post 3 colors were used for this counter top though only the white and black were used. Do the white first as a base and layer alternating between the colors. I sprinkled on some glitter between a few of the polycrylic coats doing this between the poly coats instead of paint coats helped it stick better. Also see my post Kitchen Remodel for more inspiration and directions for this project.
The door hinges were fist sanded with steel-wool then spray painted with Rust-Oleum Forged Hammered Antique Pewter *tip poke screws into cardboard box to spray.
