Seal the Finish

To protect the new paint job, coat the entire vanity and all doors and/or drawer fronts with a layer of non-yellowing, water-based polyurethane.

Attach Doors, Drawers and Hardware

Re-attach the doors, drawers and hardware using the appropriate screwdriver. If the hardware on the vanity is outdated, consider replacing it with updated knobs or handles. Most home improvement stores carry a wide variety of hardware to choose from, and switching them out is a quick, inexpensive way to update the look.

Replace Faucet

If the faucet could use an update, replace it with one that coordinates with the new style of the vanity.
