Updating old cabinets

While we are on the subject of metals, when I say black- I mean BLACK- NOT, Oil Rubbed Bronze. If you are painting your kitchen, the extra holes can be filled, sanded, and smoothed prior to painting so you can start with a clean slate and choose any hardware for your update.

Now—of course—if you have hideous coloured tiles from the 1930’s then I’m sorry, not even new paint will help you.

Since we also got rid of the pink countertop, we replaced it with this faux marble laminate.

I used a high quality formica laminate from Belanger Laminates which almost looks like the real thing. Last but not least, the hubs installed a new sink and faucet.

Moving on to the vanity, I begin by removing the pink countertop and cabinet hardware.

I’m going to be re-positioning the holes for the hardware so I fill them prior to priming the unit. You probably already know this but as a reminder, it’s super important to use paint specifically for furniture as you don’t want anything that will chip or peel overtime especially with bathroom humidity.

I had some brass round pulls that I bought for my IKEA hack a while back which we never ended up using.
