How To Paint A Bathroom Vanity?


Gather the necessary supplies

Before you start painting, you need to make sure you have all the supplies you need. For this project you will need: a paintbrush, a roller, a drop cloth, painters tape, a screwdriver, a putty knife, sandpaper, a paint tray, a stir stick, and paint. You will also need a bathroom vanity that needs to be painted!
Start by gathering all of your supplies. Once you have everything you need, you can begin painting your bathroom vanity.


Prepare the vanity by removing hardware and sanding

To paint a bathroom vanity, you'll need to start by preparing the surface. Remove any hardware from the vanity, and sand the surface to create a smooth base for the paint. If the vanity is made of wood, you'll want to use a fine-grit sandpaper to avoid damaging the wood. Once the surface is prepared, you can begin painting.


Apply a coat of primer

Before you start painting, it's important to apply a coat of primer. This will help the paint to adhere to the surface and will also create a more even finish. When choosing a primer, be sure to select one that is specifically designed for use on bathroom vanities. Once you have the primer, apply it to the surface of the vanity using a paintbrush or roller.


Apply the first coat of paint

You're almost there! The final step is to apply the first coat of paint. Be sure to use a paintbrush or roller designed for use with latex paint, and follow the manufacturer's instructions for application. Once the first coat is dry, you can decide whether or not to apply a second coat.


Let the paint dry and apply the second coat

After you have finished applying the first coat of paint, it is important to let it dry before applying the second coat. Depending on the type of paint you are using, this can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. Once the first coat is dry, you can then begin to apply the second coat. Again, it is important to follow the same steps as you did with the first coat.


Let the paint dry and apply a final coat of sealant

Once you have applied the paint to the bathroom vanity, you will need to let it dry completely before applying a final coat of sealant. This will help to protect the paint and keep it looking fresh for longer. Sealant is also important if you are using a light color paint, as it will help to prevent the paint from chipping or fading over time.


Reinstall hardware

Disconnect the plumbing from the vanity. If you have a drop-in sink, you may need to remove the countertop to access the plumbing.

Remove all the doors and drawers from the vanity. If possible, remove the hardware as well. Sand the vanity with medium-grit sandpaper to rough up the surface and help the paint adhere. Wipe away any dust with a damp cloth. Paint the vanity with a primer and then with a coat or two of paint in the color of your choice. Reattach the doors and drawers, and then the hardware.


Enjoy the newly painted vanity!

Enjoy the newly painted bathroom vanity! This is one of the most rewarding steps in the process, as you get to see the results of your hard work. The newly painted vanity will brighten up the room and give it a fresh, new look.

Painting a bathroom vanity is a great way to give your bathroom a new look without spending a lot of money. It's a relatively easy project that most people can do in a weekend. Just be sure to take your time and use a good quality paint.
