The vanity is normally considered the centerpiece of your bathroom. This is the first piece of furniture we see when entering this room, So a faded and outdated aspect of your vanity can remove a lot of charm from this important space in our daily life. Rather than replace it and invest an exuberant amount of money on a new piece of furniture, I offer you an easy-to-do tutorial to showcase this room.
Step 1 – Surface preparation
If it has been varnished before, clean the vanity with Colorantic Cleaner and Varnish Remover and let it react for about 10 minutes, then rince if off, then sand down the surface, if not, you can spray the surface and wipe it down right after.
Step 2 – Applying the colour
Apply two to three coats of Emerald paint to the base of the cabinet. Let dry between coats. Next, apply one to two coats of brown chocolate cake glaze on top of your cabinet. Let dry between coats.
Step 3 – Finishing the handles and faucet
Apply a coat of primer on the handles and the faucet. Next, apply a coat of Metallic Jewel Paint to the handles and faucets.
Step 4 – Stencil
Make a small amount of Cotton Ball and Emerald paint mixture (approximately 1: 2) to lighten the Emerald colour and create a contrast between the furniture and the stencil pattern.
Use the stencil of your choice to apply a pattern to the doors or drawers according to your style and according to the shape of your furniture.
Step 5 – Furniture protection
Apply two coats of varnish to the entire cabinet including the handles and faucet to ensure optimal protection against water. Allow for a 24 drying hour period between coats of varnish.
With these easy-to-perform steps requiring no tool manipulation, you’ll be able to add an inspiring impact to your room. Not only is this project inexpensive, it’s your own and it will garner admiring comments from your guests more than any vanity from the store could.
