How to get a Painted Wood Look
So the other day I got tired of staring at my powder room vanity. And I decided I maybe wanted to try a painted wood look.
Don’t get me wrong, there was nothing overtly wrong with it. But it was a builder grade pressed board laminate covered cabinet with no character to be found. I wanted a little upgrade, but I’m not quite ready to tackle a full vanity replacement at this time. I just had the urge to PAINT something. Know what I mean?

This is where I left the room after my $200 makeover. Believe me, it is a far cry from where it once was! But I still need to pull some things together. So let’s begin with the vanity!
Well, I came across this furniture makeover from my friend Lauren over at Bless’er House! Wouldn’t this painted wood look be perfect for my powder room vanity!?
So I gave her little tutorial a try. And It came out better than expected! I LOVE when projects go right the first time. It took me no time at all, probably two hours, to completely change the look of this vanity! And I think it totally changes the look of the space. The painted wood look is so much farmhouseier in here!
You may have noticed some other updates as well, like how I updated our outdated accessories in a matter of minutes… but I’ll share those another day!
