Looking for an Easy Do It Yourself Vanity Update? Look no further! We’ve got all the details on refreshing your bathroom vanity! There are so many variations and ways you can execute your cabinet transformation, below are the steps I took on mine.
Step One: Painting your Vanity
I chose the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformation Kit in Black.
The paint is pretty thin and this is the reason I love it so much! There are zero brush strokes and it dries in no time! This kit comes with step-by-step instructions so you’ll have no problem transforming your vanity!
I started by removing all the old and dated hardware. Then using the scrubber included in the kit, I applied the deglosser. Afterwards, I wiped the drawers, cupboards, and cabinet down with a clean damp rag.
Next you’ll paint! Allow a couple hours between each coat. When painting the cupboard doors, start on the backside and finish with the door fronts. I chose not to antique, but that is personal preference. Next you’ll seal the paint with the protective topcoat. That’s it?
So easy and such a transformation!

Step two: Countertop
I removed the existing countertop and made a new one using (4) 2×6 boards. I’ll link up a more detailed tutorial on the countertops soon! But for now, here are a few pictures for your reference.
Step three: Adding new hardware
After 24 hours of painting, you can add your new hardware! My new hardware was the same size as the hardware I took removed so that made it super easy to update!
I was able to use my existing holes for my single knob and I drilled larger holes for my pulls. I chose Baldwin Hardware in Satin Brass Black finish. The quality surpasses any hardware I’ve ever used!
Need an even simpler vanity update?
If changing out your countertop and sink aren’t in the budget, new hardware on a vanity will go a long way!!! You’d be surprised at what updated hardware can do for any dresser or cabinet. It’s a small investment that makes a big statement. I highly recommend starting there if you just need something “new”.
Below are a few shots of the finished vanity and some of the in between! I hope YOU feel ready to tackle your dated vanity. It’s so fun creating a space that is unique to your own personal style!
I firmly believe it’s worth the time an effort to make a space you love.
