Master Bathroom: we painted the vanity!

and the walls, and found pulls....

I'll slow down and start at the beginning.

First, to note the elephant in the room- I took a pretty long blogging break! This isn't my first break, but we have been so busy with house projects that I needed to just focus on our stuff. But like I always say after a break- I MISSED BLOGGING SO MUCH! So here I am- and ready to get started...again.

So here's where we left the master bathroom.
We moved in and pretty much plopped new faucets in. By the way- those faucets are still on Amazon for LESS THAN $40! That's amazing! 

Oh the oak in this house- so much oak. Oak cabinets in the kitchen, oak floors, every vanity was in oak. It was hard on the eyes and something that needed to be changed pretty quickly. 

I shared my chalk painting tutorial here so I am not going to rehash the process. But what I can say is that we did this project last March (!!) and have been living with it for a year and it's held up great! The only change I made to the original chalk paint recipe is that I used a different color paint. This is Behr's Rustic Taupe in the flat finish. 
It did NOT take much to totally transform this space. I've even had people ask if we swapped out the counter top- NOPE! Remember this is phase 1. I spent $4 on a tester size of paint for this whole vanity. Amazing right? I will add that we have since added pulls to the "fake drawers" and it looks even better!

The pulls came in a 10 pack on Amazon. They are a warm chestnut color but they are a close enough match to the faucets for me to not even notice (I knew this when I purchased). 

I'll share the wall color soon and other updates we added in this space.  But for now can we just admire how a little paint can go a LONG way?!
