Painting a Clear Vessel Sink

andicat628November 10, 2009

Just wanted to show off my Vessel Sink. I found this clear sink in a flea market for $12!!! Its a $140 sink, I have no idea why they were selling it for so cheap. I knew I was going to buy a thick bowl and turn it into a vessel sink, I just cant believe we actually found a vessel sink. Anyway...this sink was again clear when we found it but thats not what I wanted. So I painted the outside of the sink with 3 different metallic spray paints. Gold, Bronze and black. And then I sealed it with several coats a high gloss glass sealer. I am so in love with it. Its fantastic. To get a sink with colors you have to spend well over $200, many are up to $2000. Im very happy with the results and I just wanted to share the possabilities with you all.

That's an impressive change. Love stories like this. A $12 sink becomes the star of the bath! Your post is indeed inspiring!

Hi, you were very lucky to find that sink...and talented to make it look so beautiful with just paint. I am looking for a clear vessel sink for my powder room but it seems what I am finding is the clear sinks have a greenish tone around the edges. Would you happen to know the brand of your sink? It looks perfectly clear in its original state.
