So a few weeks ago I decided I was going to use the rest of the gray paint from the playroom project in September to paint our guest bathroom. The cabinet was already black, so gray seemed like a great color choice, and I had just enough! Some of the mini-projects to the facelift were:
- Paint Countertop w/Rustoleum Countertop coating (see image below)
- Made Giant Ruler to measure the kids and keep forever
- Cut a door in half so I can keep the top open and the bottom closed
See below for the photos of the facelift. I also have a step by step post for the Giant Ruler and for Cutting a Door in Half.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. It was a simple make-over, but I plan to tile the wall behind the mirror and the floors sometime in the future. And some day replace the sink and counter, or the whole vanity.
Painting a countertop
The counter in that bathroom was already painted with the Rust-oleum Countertop Coating, but I wasn’t fond of the color, especially after I painted the walls. I hadn’t planned on painting it at first, but once the gray went up, I had to make a change. I’m glad I did it! I have enough left over for when I re-do the laundry room, I can use it on the folding station in there to match, since they are connected.
It’s very easy, just paint it on, a small roller being your best option. It does have terrible fumes/smells so make SURE you have good ventilation. I never would have done this in winter had I known ahead of time. I had all the first floor windows open in 30 degree weather, and you would have too
