We'll be doing a home DIY I'll be doing a little make over for my powder room downstairs, I'm making over the vanity mirror as well as the cabinets. You can see that I changed the mirror up and then also resurfaced the cabinets as well without further ado, let's get started, starting with materials, I'm using the very same wood stain in the color . The reason I'm using wood stain is because I want a matte coat out texture on the cabinet. However, you can use regular paint if you want a quicker dry time and also easier application. Next, I need a brush, so I picked a medium size since I'll be using it for both cabinets and the mirrors.
Also, some paper bowls for holding the brush also need some tape for taping off the edges for the mirror gloves. While I'm painting the screwdriver for attaching and removing the hardware for the mirror, I got the e6000 glue to attach the mosaic pieces to make the mosaic pieces I'm using this silver platter. I got from the Dollar Tree, I'm going to thought this project off by painting the mirror first, since that is the piece that I'll be attaching all these mosaic pieces. So I wanted to dry first, so I'm going to first take this off the wall and I have this old shower curtain. I'm going to lay on the floor so that way I make sure I don't get any paint on the floors or anything.
I'm going to start off by taping off the edges. I actually ran out of tape completely, but I got too lazy to actually get more tape, so I'm going to use this piece and reuse it around the mirror. Of course. If you have more than enough tape, then you can definitely tape up your entire mirror. First, before you start painting, however, I don't have the luxury of that today, so I'm just going to keep scooting back and forth with this same piece of tape.
As far as the painting goes just make sure, when you're using this type of paint you're putting it on to the container first, so that way you have a very thin coat. Anything that is a wood stain that is oil-based is going to take much longer to dry, so you really want to keep that coat nice and thin. However, like I said before, if you do choose to use regular paint, then it's business as usual. You can just go ahead and paint a regular coat instead of a really thin coat, while I'm waiting for a mirror to dry, I'm going to go ahead and remove all the hardware from the bathroom vanity, and that way it will leave me a nice clean surface To start painting, I'm also going to go ahead and tape up the bottom of the vanity. So that way, I don't get any paint on the floor.
Just a couple things to keep in mind again: you want to paint at a certain direction, so you don't want it to look messy or anything like that and then also again make sure you use a really thin coat if you slobber, if they coat on this, It will not dry and you're going to have a lot of difficulty at the end, we're going to do two coats. This is the first coat as well. So if you do see some Brown showing through that is perfectly okay and then just make sure you paint any edges that are going to show up when you have the cabinet clothes as well after you're done with that. The frame for the mirror should be ready for a second coat. This coat is really light, you're really just covering the brown areas and that's if it will still leave it a little bit tacky that is absolutely okay and then we're going to go back to the vanity and we're going to go ahead and do a second coat.
