Updating A Bathroom Vanity
How to Turn a Builder-Grade Vanity into a Custom and Chic Piece
Paint the cabinet door with semigloss interior latex paint. When the paint is dry, cut a piece of scrap wallpaper to fit the recessed panel. Apply spray adhesive to the back of the paper, then carefully smooth it onto the panel. Use a paintbrush to apply a thin coat of decoupage medium over the paper and the entire door. Beyond fun embellishments and personality-adding details, a good cabinet makeover often starts with fresh paint.
How to Update an Old Bathroom Vanity
Since the handy hubby and I are always tackling projects in our own home on the cheap I figured it was finally time to start sharing some of them for others to draw some knowledge and inspiration from. The bathroom updating started pretty innocently, in fact it started with cleaning the tile floor. The cleaning went wrong when some grout got scrubbed out of the tile joints and then things snow balled from there. For the doors, we really liked to the look of a beaded inset door and picked up a rail and stile bit set for our router table that we can use on other projects. These bits are not cheap but we have a lot of cabinet doors to update throughout the house, so we bought one we liked and will save a ton going the DIY route versus buying new cabinets or having the doors custom made by someone else.

This update is super simple because it just involves covering up the design on the doors. When the update is done, these doors will have a shaker style and will better match the rest of the new bathroom.
