Julie's latest video...
Good morning, and Happy Halloween!
It is going to be absolutely horrid weather tonight for the kiddos.
In the 40’s, windy, and rainy.
Hopefully, the forecast is exaggerating, joking, or confused, lol.
Either way, I bet they will still have a blast.
This “Black Vanity Makeover” wasn’t something I planned on doing.
I was cleaning the bathroom last week, and realized the top of the vanity had really worn.
So, I wrote in my datebook on last weekend, “paint vanity”.
I probably would have let it go longer, but we plan on selling in a year or 2, so this stuff needs to be done.
Bathrooms are a huge selling point.
I took a shot of the bathroom from outside in the hall for you so you can see how the decor ties in.
This hall runs directly off our laundry room from the garage, and the kitchen is in front of that chair.
A few things you may be interested in before I tell you about the vanity…just click:
Okay, enough of that.
Isn’t the vanity gorgeous black?
She shines like the movie star she was meant to be.
Here she is before:
Here’s what happened.
When we moved in, the vanity in this 1/2 bathroom was beautiful.
I should have left her alone.
After years of denial, I can finally admit I ruined it.
Not once, but twice.
I tried being cool and distressed it thinking it would look better.
I was so wrong.
Then there’s the sink drama.
Oh, Julie, Julie, Julie.
After I knew I hated the distressed look of the wood,
we went out and bought a copper sink to try to make it look better (it was originally creamy ceramic).
It was nice for a while until I cleaned it with something I will never admit.
I ruined it, again.
A few months ago we spray painted it with brown spray paint.
It helped, but I still wasn’t happy with the overall look.
So, here we are.
After painting the vanity black, I spray painted the sink black as well.
Ahhhh… satisfied and in love with the fresh look.
Everything flows better.
The mirror stands out.
Even my thrift store milk glass soap dish is happy.
All I had to do was sand the vanity in all of the rough areas after removing the hardware.
Then, I painted like a mad woman using my favorite paint, Behr Premium Plus Ultra.
The color is “Black”, and the sheen is eggshell.
Behr Premium Plus has the primer in it.
This only needed 2 coats.
Eggshell sheen is flat looking, but it still is easy to wipe.
Let me know what you think.
