Because I'm sure you've been wondering [Oct. 20th, 2008|06:45 am]

Here's what I managed to get done this weekend.

Not much.

Saturday, I painted the ceiling in the front bathroom, painted the vanity in the back bathroom, and did a lot of sitting on the couch. So maybe I did get a lot done, if sitting on the couch counts as something.

Yesterday was better. My sister came over to work on tiling, my mom stopped by to help with cleaning, and even The Boy got into the act. Husband got re-directed to bagging leaves in the back yard (not at all what I would have chosen for him to do, but sometimes it's better not to try and argue with my sister).

The house still looks like a wreck, but it's clean. I'm always amazed at how sometimes you don't realize how dirty something is until you start cleaning it. Not that we've been living in filth or anything. Just dinge.

what do you use to paint your vanity

hi....stumbled upon your blog. Just wondering, what did you use to paint your vanity? I tried painting ours and it looked good for awhile, but now it's peeling and looks worse than before! (I even did the "swirley" effect to make it look like marble.) FYI - I used Kilz, then acrylic colors, then topped with polyurethene.

Re: what do you use to paint your vanity

I used an oil-based enamel. It's getting harder and harder to find, but because of the high moisture in bathrooms (especially here in swampland) it's the only thing that holds up.

Did you paint on bare wood, or over existing paint? If the existing paint was oil-based, then that could cause any non-oil-based paint on top of it to peel (although the kilz should have helped with that)

I did not use an oil based paint - guess that was my problem. I may sand it all down and try again - THANK YOU!
