“new” bathroom vanity

In February, I started day dreaming about grey vanities in our bathrooms.  After researching the available options, I decided to paint our master bathroom vanity. This is the worst picture ever (photos with no natural light defeat me every time) but the result is impressive.

I decided I wanted a high gloss finish and used an oil based paint, Rust-oleum Gloss Smoke Grey.  Yes, this was a challenge especially while living in a condo. Oil based paint is super smelly and needs to cure outside. Except I have no where to paint outside except the building roof deck and the air is full of pollen.  I did all my painting in the master bath and almost asphyxiated myself.  As usual, my timing wasn't perfect.  Let me also note: I hate DIY projects.  Every time I start one, mid way through the process I think "this sucks."  Next time I'm thinking about one, please remind me I hate this crap.  On the flip side, it cost about $30 to do the entire project and it looks bad ass.  I love it!  

Here's a glimpse of the cabinet and the vanity area before..I thought I had a picture in my files but I didn't.  I am a DIY failure.
