Laundry Room Painted Sink

So I’m getting the house ready for sale and find myself looking all around the house for projects that have to be done. Yesterday,  I had a pretty productive day!

The first project I wanted to get done was the laundry sink. It is a mess!!

This will be interesting to see if it cleans up well.This sink is used for everything!I first washed, scrubbed, the sink, and above is what it looked like when it was all cleaned.

There is a strong odor. Keep a window open, and a fan on, and wear a mask. I wore a respirator mask, didn’t smell a thing. Also, remember to wear gloves. I wore regular latex gloves. Do not use a roller or a foam brush. Use a poly brush. Do not shake the can, you will end up with bubbles!  Instead, use a paint stick to stir slowly.  It is a bit thicker than paint. I started in the back of the sink on top by the faucet. Be sure to mask off your faucet with painters tape. Brush one way. You only have a little bit of time for it too become sticky so make sure you fix  any drips. You may have to do more than one coat, but do not add more than 2 coats. This is what my sink looks like now…

It may look a little yellowish, it’s coming from the light above. I loved the way it came out so much….I painted the front and legs too!

 

Doesn’t it look Brand New!!!   So what did I use? Rustoleum Specialty Tub and Tile Refinishing Kit!  This is a great product:

So….ready to do your sink??

      1. I always get a little nervous when updating a staple in your home. Do you know what I mean?? So afraid I will mess up. This stuff worked like a charm. On big items like tubs, you should use a roller on the big areas, and a brush around the knobs and such. If you do this Diane…I want to hear and see about your experience please! Thank you!//rcm-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/cm?o=1&p=12&l=ur1&category=kuft&banner=07V9YHKS4HY556H67002&f=ifr&lc=pf4&linkID=03c1db7c658ef447c0cf131c8b119999&t=kelleysdiy-20&tracking_id=kelleysdiy-20

      1. You think I am the one who is going to do it? Ha! I’ll get The Boss to work on it, and I’ll clean up afterwards. But first he has to finish resurfacing the stand under this gorgeous sink. All work stopped because he doesn’t feel like doing anything around the house since we are in the lockdown and don’t have any guests. His excuse is that he is too busy with work – which he really is.
