Painting Cabinets, Part II: The Vanity
Since I got so much awesome feedback and inspiration on my kitchen cabinets thread I'm going to start a separate one on possibly painting the bathroom vanity. There are three total baths in the house and all three have the same ugly type of wood for the vanities but one is in the basement so we're going to let it go for a while and the other is in our master bath which we plan to remodel as soon as possible. (That will be a whole other topic someday!)
This third bath is off the main level living area. Ideally I'd like to get an all new vanity, countertop, mirror and light fixture but for now I can mostly just make inexpensive cosmetic improvements. The good news is that I LOVE the white tile floor pattern and it's in great shape. There's square white tile halfway up the walls and the bathtub also has square white tile, but in a diamond pattern.
I already have a really cute shower curtain that I spotted one day at Target and had to have because it made me smile to look at. The idea I'm kicking around is to paint the vanity a soft blue gray. I've attached photos of the current bathroom, the shower curtain and some inspiration pics of painted vanities.
I haven't dared to suggest this to DH yet since I'm not sure if he'd like going with something "different" but whether I mention it to him will depend on what you all think. :)
