Paint A Bathroom Vanity In One Step

, by Gene Howard, 4 min reading time

Have you ever wanted to bring new life to your bathroom vanity or cabinets? 

This tutorial will show you how to do it the DIY way WITHOUT spending a fortune! 

In this Finish Friday, Amy Howard and her husband Gene show us how to EASILY refinish & paint your bathroom vanity in just one step. 

Painting your bathroom vanity is the perfect weekend project that absolutely anyone can do, no matter if you’re a seasoned expert or beginner.

Just like Amy, you can start by choosing your favorite One-Step Paint color after looking over the NEW hand-made Amy Howard at Home One Step Paint Guide


You can find the hand-made One Step Paint Color Guide Here.


STEP 1: Remove Your Hardware


As you prepare to paint your vanity or cabinets, you’ll want to make sure to remove any knobs, handles, or screws if you do not plan on painting them. 


It is best to label your hardware based on the door or drawer it came from using a sharpie and tape. 


STEP 2: Clean Your Bathroom Vanity

Before you begin painting your bathroom vanity or cabinets, you’ll want to make sure to thoroughly clean each area that will be painted to get the best adhesion possible. 


We recommend using our Clean Slate to remove any wax, oil, grease, grime, or surfactants from your bathroom vanity or cabinets.  


STEP 2: Remove & Paint Your Drawers

Now that you’ve cleaned your vanity or cabinets, it’s time to start painting. 


If you have any drawers (or doors that are easier to paint taken off), you’ll want to remove them and begin applying your first coat of One Step Paint before beginning on the base of the vanity.


No matter the type of cabinetry you have, or its current finish, the Amy Howard at Home One Step Paint is perfect for completing this project quickly and easily. 

For steady application and ease of use, we recommend using our 1.5” Nylon Tapered Paint Brush to complete your drawers and doors. 


If your drawers and doors have a larger surface area, you can use our Foam Roller Brush to paint the top of them without the risk of brush marks. 


STEP 3: Paint Your Bathroom Vanity Or Cabinets

After applying the first coat of One Step Paint to your drawers and doors, while it dries, you’ll want to begin painting the base of your bathroom vanity or cabinets. 


For the larger areas of your bathroom vanity or cabinets, like the sides, you can use our Foam Roller Brush to efficiently apply your first coat. 


For smaller areas, such as in between the drawers, you can continue using the 1.5” Nylon Tapered Paint Brush.


STEP 4: Let Your First Coat Dry 


After painting the first coat onto the drawers, doors, and the base of your vanity or cabinets, you’ll want to let them air-dry for at least an hour before you apply the second coat.


You’ll know when your piece is completely dry because it will come to a flat matte finish. 


STEP 5: Apply Your Second Coat

Once all of your work has dried, you’ll want to begin applying your second coat of One Step Paint in the same order as before (drawers and doors then the base of your bathroom vanity or cabinets). 


The great part about completing your project with the Amy Howard at Home One Step Paint is that you will not need to sand in-between coats! 


Simply apply the second coat of One Step Paint and you’re finished painting! 


STEP 6 (Optional): Apply Wax

Now, this step is completely optional…


After your second coat of One Step Paint has dried and before you put the hardware back on, you can apply our Mind Your Own Beeswax to add an additional coat of protection and a light patina to your finish.
