Last we left the bathroom vanity, it had furniture legs installed and a couple layers of primer. The end goal: have a painted vanity with a fun color.
I picked out nearly a dozen paint samples. I wanted something minty without being too green, too blue, or too pastel.
I landed on Footpath by Olympic. I picked this out a couple of weeks ago (as you may know, since it was in the bathroom inspiration mood board). Lucky me, Lowe’s was running a buy-one-get-one promo on paint samples, so I snagged two pots of the same color for the price of one ($3!).
After three very thin and even layers of the color, applied with a foam roller, I finished it off with a couple of layers of polyurethane. I used a water-based formula (oil-based yellows over time) in high gloss (for the extra hardness). It was very similar to painting this dresser.
Oh, and I didn’t even crack into the second pot of Footpath, so there’s lots leftover for whatever my little heart desires.
And with a little patience, we took our builder-grade honey wood from this:
On to the knobs. I found these pretty things at World Market for $5 a piece, $20 to deck out the vanity.
Now, coral knobs were in the plan. But they were $8 a piece from Anthropologie. Not the worst, and I only had to buy four, but I still want to save money where I can. So they got nixed. No biggie, I wasn’t super attached.
I’m going to leave you in suspense regarding what it looks like with knobs. Definitely not because I’m lazy and didn’t feel like taking a picture, editing and uploading it. Nooo, no no noooo. Because… SUSPENSE!
Oh, and check out the Footpath against the gray penny tile. That’s going to look awesome as a floor. So excited.
I’m kinda twiddling my thumbs on the floor thing. We only need 30 square feet of penny tile (10 of which we already own), but I’m waiting for a sale at The Tile Shop. Yeah yeah, $5 tile x 20 isn’t a huge deal, but I gotta pinch those pennies (no tile puns intended). But I DID buy cement backboard and accessories, so I’ll be haphazardly trying to figure that out soon enough.
Pst! Go find me on Facebook. Let’s chit chat and be silly!
