I am soooo very excited to show you this project!
I gave you a sneak peek of something I was painting last week.
It was our bathroom vanity! You know…the one that we just re-did?
Yep! We re-did it again!
(I just started singing Brittany Spears’ “Oops, I did it again” in my head.)
The second makeover turned out WAY better than the first.
Let’s take a look back shall we?
We bought this dresser at a thrift store last fall for $50.
I immediately knew that I wanted to turn it into a vanity for our master bathroom.
I was picturing something beautiful in my head. Like this…
Cy worked really hard on sanding and staining our dresser…
He added a drop in sink…
(CLICK HERE to see how we installed the sink.)
It really was beautiful. I loved it.
But as we continued to work on the bathroom, something wasn’t jivin’ and I couldn’t put my finger on it.
I loved the hard wood floors…
I loved the claw foot tub….
But there was something about that vanity that wasn’t sitting well with me.
I think I was having trouble with the dark cherry stain. It just wasn’t working with the walnut floor and beams.
I started thinking about painting it, but I didn’t want to tell Cy.
He was going to kill me.
But it kept bugging me.
And bugging me.
I mentioned to Cy that I sort of wanted to paint it. And guess what? I’m still livin’!
I guess after being married to me for 15 years, nothing really surprises him any more.
So then I started rolling around in my head, “What color do I want to paint it?”
And here is what I decided on…
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen.
(If I do say so myself!)
I was able to add the original hardware back on the vanity, and it looks great.
I was DYING to show you guys last week! It is EXACTLY what I was envisioning for my bathroom, and I am SOOOO glad I painted it!
So here is my advice to you for what it is worth.
If something isn’t jivin’ in your décor…change it!
Trust your gut!
Just do it!
You’ll be so glad you did. I know I am.
Let’s look back and the transformation of this $50 dresser…
Tomorrow, I will show you how I painted the dresser. It was super easy.
I will also give you a breakdown of the total cost of this dresser turned vanity.
So what do you think?
Do you like it better stained or painted?
