A few weeks ago I used the Rustoleum Countertop Transformations kit and I loved it. But the new bright clean counter looked very plain so I decided to used the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations to deepen the cabinets and make everything a little more dramatic. We love drama, right?
Before I started my vanity looked like this: Bleh. Boring mirror, plain cabinets, dark depressing counters… I was not a happy camper.
So with the Rustoleum Countertops Transformations Kit I got to this: Ooo!
(I also used this product in my kitchen, check it out here.)
Better but still meh. Brighter for sure. The finish is really nice and the surface is very durable.
Next step was to paint the vanity. I know a lot of people just use normal latex paint but I wanted to make sure that it would have to durability of an original finish so I used the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations on the vanity base and medicine cabinets.
I started by removing all the doors/drawers, de-glossed them after setting up a “fancy” work table in my spare room. I used (2) sawhorses, (2) 8 ft 1x4s and (4) sheets of attic decking.
Since I was already starting with a medium-dark base my cabinets only required two coats of the base coat.
The color I chose is a perfect shade between brown and black called “Tudor”.
Rustoleum’s Cabinet Transformations is an amazing product and the color is phenomenal.
I love all things Tudor – The show, the house style, and now the color!
The closest thing I ever got to visible brush strokes was this: A VERY faint line where the verticals meet the horizontals. If you read the pamphlet it tells you how to reduce their appearance. This is the result of following those instructions. Not bad, eh?
After applying a protective top coat and allowing to dry for several hours I reinstalled the doors and drawers.
Let there be light!!
Here I added knobs to the medicine cabinet doors.
And here I installed a frame around the mirror using some leftover moulding from my entryway.
I just love the dark cabinetry with the light countertops :)
