When some unfortunate circumstances forced us to need a replacement for our master bathroom vanity, I immediately knew I wanted to transform a dresser into a beautiful custom vanity.

As if it were meant to happen, a neighbor was getting rid of an old dresser just when I was looking for one, and it was EXACTLY the size I needed! He was getting rid of it because of water damage on the top. That was just fine with me, as we planned to replace the top with a quartz counter top regardless! It wasn’t in bad shape, but it needed a face lift for sure.

As I designed our new bathroom, I fell in love with the color Hazel by Sherwin Williams. Country Chic offers a WONDERFUL custom color matching service and I knew that’s just what I wanted!

Special ordering this color from Country Chic was a breeze. I gave them the name and number of the color I wanted, and within days my paint arrived, complete with a beautiful label made just for me!

I was so eager to paint the dresser and begin the transformation that I didn’t really do any prep work. Outside of wiping down the surface of any grime, I just dove right in! The paint went on so smoothly and offered enough coverage with just two coats.

When the paint had completely dried, I took 220 grit sandpaper to distress the edges just enough to give it that easy farmhouse look I was after. I paid special attention to the details on the drawers, to bring out the gorgeous scrolls and make them pop. I also went over the larger flat areas lightly and quickly to smooth the surface.

After the dresser was distressed, I wiped it down with a damp cloth to rid the surface of dust and began applying the Tough Coat. I used a simple sponge brush to apply one coat and I was done!

I’m not sure how, but somehow I lost the hardware in the midst of this transformation and all of our home improvements. But I think it turned out for the best because I actually LOVE the shiny silver and glass hardware I used in its place.

And that’s it! It was all ready for my husband and the plumbers to work their magic. I am absolutely in love with this transformation. Not too bad for a dresser destined for the dump!

  1. Before i had heard of yr wonderful paint, i
    painted a large mirror found in the trash using latex paint i had used in my house on walls. It went ok but im wanting to antique it before putting outside next spring on my deck fence. What shld i buy to give it that old weathered look? It hasnt been sanded.
    Cheers.

  2. Your vanity is gorgeous! Can you tell me how high the total height is? I’m considering using an old sideboard, but am concerned with using vessel sinks as it may be too tall. Thanks for any help you can lend me!
