Painted utility tub

Sunday, January 24, 2021

 So this isn’t really what this product is for and I have no idea if it will last....but my sink was stained with rust water and I thought why not! You can get the paint I used here 

I did not remove the sink or faucet to paint. I just taped around the entire sink and faucet.

First I cleaned and dried the entire sink. 

Then take a plastic bag and wrap it around the faucet, use a rubber band wrapping it around the faucet to make it tight.

Tape around the sink and faucet.
Then added a thin layer of paint with a foam roller here 

It took two coats and I did use the glaze that came with the kit over it. I Just used a foam roller and applied it. No polyurethane at this point.

It really is an amazing transformation. I figured if the paint is made to stick to ceramic tiles, that get wet. Why wouldn't it work on a sink?

Apply the glaze with a mini roller. It goes on thin and you don't need a lot. 

I left it to cure for 3 days before I attempted to use it. So far so good! no chipping the finish is hard and I'm really happy with the look.
I hope this easy and inexpensive project inspires you to do something new. Don't let fear stop you. It's really just paint. If we mess up we can paint over it!

 I hope this helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.

Don't let fear of trying something hold you back. It's okay to make mistakes along the way, that's how we learn what we don't like.

When I use a product I do try to link it for you and if you decide to purchase the product I am affiliated with some of those companies. Its the only way to offset the time it takes building my how tos for decorating and DIY.

I am in no way asking you to click and purchase any items but it makes it easier for all the info to be on one site. Many different stores carry the products I use. But the links I provide is where I had purchased.

I hope that helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.
