Ready for a Change
Start with a standard builder-grade vanity that no longer matches the bathroom’s fresh, updated look, but still has a lot of life left in the cabinet. You can always start over with a new vanity, but here are three budget-friendly alternatives worth trying.
Use Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations (#338495) to apply a fresh color -- Meadow is shown -- with no stripping, sanding, or priming required. Complete the new look with a cultured-marble top with built-in sink (#19078), oil-rubbed bronze two-handle faucet (#64364), matte-black arched cabinet pulls (#227433), and flat-black round cabinet knob (#362462).
Replace the door and drawer fronts with Shaker-style versions made from MDF and craft boards, then paint the cabinet a bold color -- Valspar Dark Kettle Black, #4011-2. Complete the look with an allen + roth™ quartz vanity top with built-in sink (#68730), chrome two-handle widespread faucet (#356604), and chrome bar-handle pulls (#59609).
Remove the drawers, modify the openings to create open storage, and reface the center door. Then paint the cabinet a striking gray -- Valspar Hazy Stratus, #4004-1C. Complete the look with a cultured-marble vanity top with built-in sink (#376845), brushed-nickel faucet (#553443), paper baskets (#164699), and brushed satin-nickel mushroom cabinet knob (#231698).
Mix and Match
You can also combine features from different vanities plus the colors of your choice. Here, the drawers were replaced with shelves and black baskets (#161897) and the door was replaced with a DIY version. Everything received a new painted finish in Valspar Bistro White, #7006-4. A new Onyx countertop (Special Order), faucet (#309946), and door pull (#99849) finish the makeover. A pair of sconces (#411820, model #atg10204579), an allen + roth™ mirror (#126985), and a towel bar (#379351) pop against painted walls (Valspar Sparkling Lake, #5002-3B). Porcelain mosaic floor/wall tiles (#526290) complete the look.
