Painting the Vanity

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback on the medicine cabinet makeover.  Apparently, I'm stuck in bathroom mode this week.  You know, it's not me unless I'm in the midst of, or contemplating a project.  I've been saying I'm going to do this next idea for a while now, but it wasnt' until two of my favorite bloggers went for it, that I decided to do the same.
 

There's nothing really wrong with my current master bath vanity, but the builder basic oak leaves a bit to be desired.

Both Decorchick and Dwellings by Devore recently painted their bath vanities, and surprisingly chose very similar colors.  They both turned out beautifully.  LOVE!

 While I love the coral color they chose, with my pink walls, I think I'm going a bit more neutral.   I'm seriously leaning toward a true, mid-tone gray.

The process "seems" pretty cut and dry.  Of course, we know shortcut Sally (me) will surely have some sort of mishap. I think I could knock it out in a weekend.
 
After I paint, I'm definitely going to change the knobs.  Not sure what direction I'm going, but there are lots of options out there.  This one at Anthropologie is nice, but may be too girly.
 
 
There's also Hobby Lobby.  Not sure if you're aware but Hobby Lobby has the BEST knobs and pulls section.  They're usually 50% off the price marked.  I like both of these options, currently available on their website.
 

 

 I guess as my friend would say, "There's nothing to it, but to do it!"  Touche', my friend, touche'.

AHAHAHA! That is right my friend. Nothing to it!

And as Young House Love says, "YOLO, go for it."

Perhaps I will tackle my bathroom wall color today. ;)
