Bathroom Vanities

I've been thinking about painting my kitchen cabinets.  But before I obsessed even more than I have already over color combinations, I decided to see if this was even a project I wanted to take on.  So I decided to paint my bathroom vanity.  I figured if the project didn't go well it was much cheaper to replace my vanity than my kitchen cabinets.

This is the before-before.  This is what the bathroom looked like when we moved in.  Although the color of the walls changed, the vanity remained the same.


It is actually amazing what adding handles and knobs will do for the look.

This project went well, but I realized that, if I want an actual determination of the durability of painted cabinets, I needed to do the boys vanity.


This vanity actually caused me to re-do the entire bathroom!  
I went with a lighter color to make the bathroom a little brighter.  It is an incredibly small bathroom.
So far the paint is holding up well.  It could also be the hundreds of coats of polyurethane I applied.  I'll give it a couple of months and then decide what to do with the kitchen.
