Prime It

Coat the entire vanity and all door and/or drawer fronts with a high-adhesion primer specifically engineered for bathroom cabinetry. Move in the direction of the wood grain, using long, smooth strokes. Watch for drips, and when finished, allow to dry.

Paint

Coat the entire vanity and all door and/or drawer fronts with two coats of semi-gloss latex paint.

Distress the Edges

For a cottage-style look, use the sanding block to lightly distress the edges of all of the doors and/or drawer fronts.
