Thanksgiving is coming up and I wanted to give my downstairs bathroom a mini-makeover on a very tight budget. I was searching Pinterest and came across a few using this kit for tubs and decided to try this on my sink. Our house is about 18 years old and this is the original sink that came with the house. It looks very 80’s with it having a pink hue and some subtle ‘marble-like’ veining in it, not to mention lots of chips. The paint kit runs around $24 so I decided to give it a try!
Pictured below is the before photo, the lighting is very poor in my bathroom so you really can’t see the pink in the sink but trust me, it’s there!
I decided to try out repainting the sink top and also chalk painting the cabinets. To check out the chalk paint method I use see this post.
What you need:
- Rust-Oleum Tub And Tile Refinishing Kit
- foam roller brushes
First I sanded down the top with a fine grade sandpaper so that the paint would stick better.
Next was taking a damp cloth and making sure all the dust was up from sanding.
I also tapped out the areas that I didn’t want the paint to get on and then put down the first coat with a foam roller.
After I waited an hour for the first layer to dry I put on another layer, and then after another hour one more layer.
Important: Make sure you ventilate the area well. This paint has a very strong smell.
Overall I am happy with how it turned out.
