You can easily re-purpose just about anything with a little imagination
Instead of buying a new vanity I decided to transform it
with a little help
from my husband
wonderful to work with!

My husband took the doors off of our "oak finish" vanity along with the top and sink.
He resurfaced the vanity right over the existing surface with beadboard.
This is the shell of the vanity.
I designed a new top for the vanity
my husband made it
I first painted the vanity using
Chalky Finish Paint
Be sure you purchase the best brushes
tools you can to insure an awesome finish!
Deco Art carries a line of brushes for their chalky finish paints, waxes and varnishes.
Romance Chalky Finish Paint
was dry I painted right over it with
Carbon Chalky Finish Paint
I then WET SAND using a FINE sanding brick.
This allows your base coat ( the red) to show thru.
You want to sand in areas that would normally show "wear"
to give your piece a primitive look
I lighly sanded the doors where the knobs would go
in a few areas on the top and sides
The RED paint will show thru that you painted first.
It is now thyme to finish your piece.
Creme Waxes or Varnishes
to complete your projects.
The choice is yours!
Clear Creme Wax
to complete this project
I bought a COPPER sink and Black Oil Rubbed Bronze faucet for my vanity
My husband installed the sink and faucet
I added Black Wrought Iron hinges and painted wood knobs.
This was a FUN project to do!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial !
