I just got back from a wonderful vacation with my whole family to Cape San Blas in Florida. I sure do miss sitting on the hammock on the deck listening to the ocean! Although, I don’t miss Kennedy’s terrible sleep schedule while we were down there.
Anywho, I’m home and back to work. I finally narrowed down my paint choice for the vanity: Sherwin Williams Georgian Bay. I just put the first coat on…and quickly remembered that the first coat is always a little scary when using colorful paint.
It’s still wet in this picture. When it dries it’s a calmer blue; not quite as bright. You can see some of the primer through the blue too because I chose to do thin coats. I’ve read over and over that that’s the way to go when painting wood.
After reading several bloggers rave about Sherwin Williams ProClassic paint I chose to go that route too with this vanity. Mandy from Vintage Revivals used it on a chest of drawers and it looks flawless. I know that using oil-based paint is the preferred method for cabinetry, but with a little baby in the house I just can’t deal with those kinds of fumes. I’m using the ProClassic Latex paint in a satin finish & will give you my full review after I’m finished. I hope I have great things to say about it!!!
I’m dying inside a little over the fact that I can’t get a new countertop anytime soon. Is this where I insert the #firstworldproblems??? I just have to remind myself to keep moving forward with what I’ve got and make it work!
Alright, time to get back to work. Wish me luck!
