You may remember from reading my official guest bathroom plans, I mentioned painting the bathroom wall Sea Haze by Benjamin Moore and giving the vanity a dark makeover. Well, thus far I don't regret either of those decisions.
I'm sure you remember the before of the all white vanity....
Here it is after the first coat of paint. I painted it Totally Black by the Home Decorators Collection in at Home Depot in a Satin Finish.
*disclaimer, these are all in progress pictures so please don't expect much:)
My favorite way to get a pro finish when painting something with a bunch of crevices is by using a decent quality foam brush like this one. In the areas that the foam brush doesn't reach, I like to use a regular paint brush. My favorite brand is Purdy.
Here you can see a pretty decent shot of the vanity and paint color during a very dreary day. *Insert heart eyes*
And here it is after a couple of coats and the added new hardware. These are the old pulls from my kitchen makeover.
Sorry for the grainy night shots. I told you I am shooting as the updates are happening so these are truly behind the scenes shots.
Here is the room once I added the trim, which still needs to be caulked and painted.
How about a (semi) side by side for visual purposes...
What a difference paint has made so far!
Well, that's all I got for you all today. Between balancing work, soaking up family time on the weekend and just managing life, I am squeezing in work on the bathroom after putting my son to bed. But after each update I smile and know its worth it. I cannot wait to put the floors down!
This weekend I am hoping to tackle window trim, backer board, and maybe even start laying the tile! Wish me luck.
I think I've found the perfect shower curtain, mirror and a few styling accessories as well.
Thanks for following along. I'll be back next week with an update. Have a great weekend.
