Hi, creative friends! It’s Denise from Salvaged Inspirations! I couldn’t be more thrilled with today’s makeover and it was inspired by the Around the House with Dixie Belle Paint campaign!
I’m sharing the step by step transformation on this salvaged curb-shopped bathroom vanity. It’s going to look perfect in my spare bathroom.
Firstly, here’s what I started with. This solid wood vanity with mirror inset.
- Wood Vanity
- White Lightning Cleaner
- Orbital Sander
- Best Dang Wax in White
- Gator Hide
First, I started by giving this piece a super good cleaning with White Lightning Cleaner.
I wanted a more modern bleached out wood so I sanded the old finish down to raw wood using an orbital sander. Once the orbital sander with 80 grit removed the old finish, I hand sanded working my way up to a 220 grit sanding sponge.
Next, I vacuumed off the dust and applied Best Dang Wax in White to lighten up the wood even further. Working in section, I used my waxing brush to brush on the wax and a shop cloth to wipe it off. If you don’t have a waxing brush, using a shop towel or lint-free cloth to apply the wax works just as well.
