This was after just one coat - it took 5 coats total. 

To remove the vanity properly, make sure you shutoff the water supply underneath the sink bowl. Turn the knobs right with pliers to tighten all the way, completely cutting off the water. Next, unscrew the water lines that are connecting the faucet to the wall. Then remove any screws that may be secured into the studs in the wall. And just like that, you can take the vanity out.

Bathroom Remodel

To finish off the remodel, I painted the tiled shower surround to give the illusion of a new tiled shower. If you'd like to see my tutorial on how to paint tile, click HERE.

‚ÄčIf you're looking for a weekend project that will instantly add value to your home, replacing your outdated bathroom vanity is a must - and it's easier than you may think.  I redid my entire bathroom, but hopefully you can see what a difference just a new vanity can make!

I think it's easier than ever to install a new sink vanity with PVC pipe. It's easy to cut to size and super light weight. When I'm trying to fit my existing pip to my new plumbing, I measure the existing pipe to make sure the new PVC will fit. Then I take lots of pictures and buy extra pipe, so I don't have to make 7+ trips to The Home Depot. Plumbing is like putting a 3-D puzzle together, and to ensure that the pieces stay together, I use plumbing tape; it's super cheap and very helpful. After everything is hooked up, turn your water supply back on - left this time, and you're done. 


I purchased my vanity at SouthEastern Salvage ($500). The faucet is from Amazon ($40). And the mirror was on sale at Kirkland's ($15) - I painted the frame the same color as the wall, since I wanted the vanity to be the focal point in the space.
