Master Bath Part II

Pool season has been over for about a month now so I have had time to get back to my master bath I have been working on. I decided to do something with the big giant mirror and counter you saw in my earlier blog post: http://dillondigitaldesigns.blogspot.com/2012/06/master-bath-redo-part-1.html

I went to my neighborhood Lowe's and had them cut two boards the width of the mirror and four the length of the mirror. I taped off the middle of the mirror and painted it to match my walls.

Then I stained the boards with an acrylic brown that I used on the bread box makeover that sits on the counter to hold the hair cutter and power strip for the hair dryer and put a coat of polyurethane on them. I attached them to the mirror with Liquid nails and held it up with duct tape over night while the glue dried. Hard to picture that it is still one giant mirror huh?

Next it was time to do something about the vanity. If you have never heard of Giani Granite counter top paint, you will have to give it a try for counters you need to update but aren't ready to spend big bucks. Here is a link to their website: http://gianigranite.com/
As you can see above, I already painted the backsplash so I did not have to paint around the wood frame.
First you put on a basecoat:

Then sponge paint the other 3 mineral colors. I used the chocolate brown kit.
I did not take a picture of the sponge process, but here is the finished result:

Sorry, the pictures are a little blurry, but the counter looks fabulous in person! Next project is to get rid of the crappy shower doors you can see in the mirror and  new flooring.
