Progress On the Bathroom

Today I painted the vanity in the hall bathroom.  You can read about the direction I am headed with it here

 You can see the color of the 1980's oak cabinet on the doors.  Sorry for the poor lighting.  This was taken midday.  

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.  This is after one coat of paint.


I did two coats of paint, then wax.

I took the original handles off and painted them a silver tone and then put them back on.

I'm very happy with how it turned out!  It looks so much better and I now know the color I am going to paint the walls, too.   I will be removing the picket fencing and the shelf that is currently in the bathroom, and I think I will be replacing the shower curtain, as well.

We'll be buying our paint this weekend, as there are tons of great sales due to Memorial Day, and then I'll be working on this project next week!  I'm so happy to finally have this project underway!

Joining Bernideen and Sandi!


  1. Looking good so far!! You'd better believe I'll be following along with this make-over!

  2. So what wax did you use? I painted a bit with chalk paint and am not sure about it! I didn't wax so that might be the key.....

  3. This will make the room lighter and brighter. Looking forward to seeing more!

  4. I can't wait to see the completed project. Paint makes SUCH a difference, doesn't it?

  5. I love a white vanity. It just brightens the room up; great job. Mine is already white so at least I don't have to paint that. Thanks for sharing and Happy Memorial Day!


  6. Great job, Deanna. My parents recently remodeled their ensuite (their first reno and they survived) and they also got a white vanity. The white colour has a nice clean look!

  7. Dear Deanna:
    That looks wonderful. I love the white cabinet against the soft green walls. You are making things looks so fresh and lovely! Great job. Thanks for sharing and linking.
