Green Bathroom Vanity Makeover

One of the things that I was most excited about when we bought our forever home was not having to “play it safe” anymore with design decisions.  And yet here we are a year into our remodel and our house is pretty grey and white. Don’t get me wrong; I love the rooms we’ve already designed, but I was ready to push ourselves out of our color comfort zone a little. Our half bath makeover is a huge departure from our typical design palette, and we’ve had a lot of fun already with the project. Over the last month I shared with you how we painted over the 1980’s era wallpaper on the walls and how we used milk paint to transform our builder’s grade laminate vanity, well now the vanity area and focal point of the bathroom is complete!

Here’s a reminder of the before:

We still have to tile the floor, install the new toilet, and decorate the rest of the room. I know a green vanity isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love having a fun space that will definitely surprise guests. And what better room than a half bath to have some fun with color?


Paint: Boxwood by Miss Mustard Seed

Wall stencil: Perfect Catch by Cutting Edge Stencils

  1. I’ll be honest, I would have never chose to paint a vanity green, but now that I see it in the room, it looks amazing! The colors are work well together and I can’t imagine you painting the vanity any other color. I don’t think I would have been brave enough to try that color, but good for you for doing it, because it looks great!

  2. I was wondering how you stuck the frame on the mirror… glue? I want to do something like that with mine but can’t decide between tiling or or wood frame…

    Your bathroom is beautiful…I wouldn’t have picked the green on its own either but it looks amazing with everything you picked!

    1. Thank you so much JoAnn! My husband actually just screwed the frame into the wall around the mirror. We probably could have taken the mirror down and glued the frame to it to make it a little fancier, but sometimes we’re lazy like that 🙂

  3. Love it! I also have laminate countertops in the bathroom and would love to paint them. Did you do anything special before painting with MMSP?

    1. Thanks Sharon! I cleaned the cabinet with a tsp substitute first, then primed. Technically you don’t have to prime with MMSP, but it was my first time using it so I was leery. Also you’re going to want to make sure you mix MMS bonding agent in with the paint. Good luck with your project!

  4. I think the green vanity is GREAT. I also love what you did to the walls with the stenciling, looks really good. Can’t wait to see the completed room. I want to see what you do with the the curtains and rest of the added touches.

  5. Love the gold rope stencil! Can you share the specific paint color and brand you used? It’s such a pretty gold!
