Finishing Touches On Bath Update

September 8, 2015

Did you all have a nice long Holiday weekend? Any projects completed? I finished up in my master bath with all the fun details and accessories:

new bath

Remember that little brown table in the room?:


Well I had fun painting it with Chalk Paint® . I do not think I will ever go through all the work again, with only so-so results by using regular paint to paint furniture. Chalk Paint® is so easy and the finish is suburb.



After painting with three coats of Pure White and two coats of Provence on the drawers. Then a coat of clear wax and that’s it!:


No priming or sanding involved when using chalk paint. I did have to refresh myself back to my post on instructions here, using the Chalk Paint® . After you paint, (letting dry approximately one hour between coats) you then apply the wax. I used the clear wax for this project. Then after waiting 24 hours to dry, I polished and buffed for a beautiful finish:

I really love how it came out! (except for the crooked toilet paper photobomb)

I knew the room was going to be a challenge because of the existing tub and tile that could not be changed at this time. By painting the walls a color that worked with the tub and then adding splashes of a bold, modern color, (turquoise), the room has a more updated and beautiful look:


I think it came out so well it should be named ‘Bath Of The Month’. What do you think House Beautiful Magazine? 🙂


Don’t give up hope on those existing items you can not change. Work with them and it will all work out beautifully.

I even changed the knobs from Target, for only $40.00 total. I love the way they change color in the light. Before:

After with new hardware:

  1. Kelly, I’m wowed by your beautiful choice of knobs on your vanity and the table turned out beautifully. This is inspiring me to go ahead and paint a used cottage style wooden coffee table I purchased months ago to chalk paint, and have not started. I need to get to the store here in Greensboro that sells the Annie Sloan chalk paint and buy the paint. Your bathroom is very “inviting”. House Beautiful “Bathroom of the Month”. Definitely!

  2. I love your beautiful table and your finished bathroom! Definitely a Bathroom of the Month contender. I need to paint my bathroom vanity and will check out the Chalk Paint. Kelly, do you know if you can get paint samples? Not sure if Chalk Paint is available in my location.
