Bathroom Vanity


I have a bathroom vanity I want to paint, but not sure what to do to prep it, or what type of paint to use? The vanity appears to be particle board covered with a laminate finish to make it smooth. Thanks for replies in advance.

  1. Best thing to do is prepare it by fixing any small defects in the laminate (use spackle) then Prime it first using a Pigmented Shellac Sealer Primer… then topcoat it with Sherwin Williams Classic-99 Acrylic (color of choice, use a semi gloss sheen)… Good Luck!

  2. To paint a bathroom vanity made of particle board with a laminate finish, you must follow these steps to ensure a successful outcome:

    1. **Preparation**: Clean the vanity using a mild detergent and water to remove any dirt or grease. Sand the surface lightly with fine-grit sandpaper to roughen up the laminate and promote better paint adhesion. Wipe down the vanity with a damp cloth to remove dust.

    2. **Priming**: Apply a high-quality bonding primer that is suitable for laminate surfaces. This will help the paint adhere better and prevent peeling or chipping.

    3. **Painting**: Use a paint specifically designed for cabinet surfaces, such as Benjamin Moore Advance paint.

    4. **Application**: Use a high-quality synthetic brush or foam roller to apply the paint in thin, even coats. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next one.

    5. **Finishing**: Optional; Once the final coat of paint is dry, consider applying a clear coat for added protection and durability. Choose a water-based polyurethane for a durable finish.

    By following these steps and using the right materials, you can successfully paint your bathroom vanity and give it a fresh new look. Remember to allow adequate drying time between each step and handle the vanity with care to ensure a professional finish.
