This room really isn’t in our budget to make over, but I did want to give it a little bit of a update. So everything we’ve done in here has been inexpensive and easy to do.
Today I’m going to show you how we painted our faucet without removing it.
This painted faucet cost less than five dollars and only took about 20 minutes to do.
You can see our faucet in this photo:
And this is what our painted faucet looks like now!
Pretty amazing, right? This is such an easy project, and it can immediately update and refresh your space! So read below to see how I did it!

Five Easy Steps to a Painted Faucet
1.) Lightly sand your faucet.
2.) Clean the area make sure there’s no sanding residue left
3.) At this point you might want to tape off the area. I chose not to because I’m lazy. The paint comes off relatively easy on the sink so it was no big deal.
4.) Paint 2 to 3 coats of your acrylic paint onto the faucet.
5.) After the paint is completely dry, apply a coat of water-based polyurethane over the top for protection.
And that’s it! For about five dollars and 20 minutes of your time, you can completely change the look of your faucet!

Love this! Would it be durable gor the kitchen faucet?
Not sure! Mine is holding up well, but my thought is if you hate it, you can’t make it worse right? 🙂
Is this durable? I’d love to do it in the kitchen.
Brilliant! A quick, easy, and inexpensive fix. I featured you on A Little Bird Told Me Link Party. I have a bathroom in need of an update. I laughed at the simplicity of spray painting the faucet. Are you kidding me? I would have spent 2 hours selecting a new one, 2 hours taking the old faucet out and putting in the new one, and spent $100-$200. You saved me both time and money. Thanks for sharing your idea!
Oh good! I’m glad I was able to save you some time and money!! And thanks for the feature1 <3
That is quite the transformation with that faucet. The entire bathroom looks nice. I love that shade of blue you’ve used.
Thank you for sharing this us on the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to see you when we open our doors at 12 AM EST on Friday.
Looks great! How has it held up?
Perfectly so far! But it’s only been a few months. I’ve done this in the past too and haven’t had any problems yet!
Your powder room is very beautiful and soooo dreamy, I want a powder room like this! Love the faucet, incredible that it’s painted!
Thank you Katrin!! It was so inexpensive to make over!
This is amazing. You can get any style faucet and customize it how you like it.
This is seriously genius. We have such an ugly fixture in our kitchen, I’m tempted to try this!
If you plan to change it eventually anyway, there’s no reason not to try it!
The faucet looks amazing. I usually paint anything in my way but I never thought about painting the faucet. It is certainly a good way to update without spending much money.
It was free for me since I had everything already! The perks of being a diy-er 🙂
