If you’re up for a hump day bathroom vanity overhaul, then you have definitely come to the right place, my friend. I’ve been hard at work in our upstairs hall bath doing my best to kick the 1960s right out of this room. Before we get into the nitty-gritty of this DIY, let’s rewind and revisit the before pictures of our bathroom.
Fair warning: I did all I could to not end up in an awkward photographer-in-the-mirror situation, but no such luck with this bathroom setup.
The dark paneling, grimy yellow cabinets, mint green sinks. I was in rehabbing paradise and could not wait to get started on this project. A light and bright bathroom with rustic wood accents was so close I could already smell the paint fumes.
First things first, the arched trim on those cabinet doors needed a facelift. So by removing the doors and replacing the old trim with a more streamlined shaker style trim, things were already looking up. Click here for more details on how I updated the cabinet doors.
Once the doors were trimmed, caulked and painted, they were ready to be rehung on a freshly painted vanity base.
On the the countertop. The master bath of my first house had a floating wood vanity that I just loved. It was easy to build and I loved the end result and durability. I knew a chunky wood countertop would look amazing for this project as well. Click here for the full how-to on building your own wood countertop.
Once the countertop was sealed and dry, we were ready to install two new ceramic vessel sinks.
Let’s hop back over to those dreadful before pictures to see just how far this bathroom has come.
Just a little smidge of a difference, right?
