So, over the course of this week, I spackled up the few scratches around the side and sanded them down.
I love the pink spackle because it is easy for my to see when it dries because it turns white. Except I kept forgetting about it, which is why this project took me all week!
After I was happy with the smoothness of the walls, I taped off the countertop to prep for painting. I did test a strip of the tape on the side first just to make sure it wouldn't hurt the finish (it didn't).
Then I got to work! I used pieces of paper to protect the countertop and I kept a wet cloth on hand to wipe up any stray drops! I am a total helicopter parent about this sink now. haha.
With two coats I could call it done! The paint was left by the previous homeowner (it is Ralph Lauren "Impressionist") and it is almost completely gone. However I am planning on repainting the whole bathroom this year so I am not worried about no longer having it for touch ups.
Much better! The smooth, modern surface shows off much better next to a coloured wall! Now I think I need to find some more stylish solutions for all the stuff I keep on my countertop. I hate the clutter, but I need everything laid out when I get ready in the mornings because my brain just doesn't function that early.
I feel like I need to do another before and after ;)
Happy weekend everyone! Plans? I am going to a cottage!!
