DIY Spray Paint your Bathroom Faucet

Hello again...
I'm back with some more bathroom updates!


As I looked around in my bathroom, deciding all of its updates, I quickly decided that this nickel faucet had to go!


It was a great look while it lasted. Sadly it was only about 5 years ago that it was the newest fad, 
and I just had to have it.

But we all know me, am I gonna just go out and spend more money on this bathroom redo?
I think not! 

I did a little research, asked a few peeps on
 their take on spray painting the fixtures, 
and decided to give it a go!

Here is what I did...

I bought this amazing spray paint by Rust-oleum


 I love these new trigger spray paints. It makes it really hard to mess up. And it doesn't get all over your hands like the other stuff. Ok well it did on mine a little because I held my hand too close to the faucet while holding it up to get in certain spots. Otherwise it doesn't get on your hands.

I just laid my faucet and all its parts on a old poster board and began spraying!

I'm thinking I should have sanded it down a little.
But as always I was in a rush to do it, as we were going to the drive in movies after I sprayed its first coat. I also wish I would have put this in like styrofoam, then I could have 
done both sides at the same time. 
Duh, but any how I just love how it turned out!


I also sprayed my toilet paper holder, my towel rack, and shower curtain rod. Oh and my light switch and plug covers.

I'll reveal all that in the final reveal.

I have more re-do posts, so stay tuned.
Until next time...
If you haven't been keeping up with the 
bathroom re-do process, 
make sure to track the process.

  4. Love that you gave it a shot (so to speak). I asked Rust-Oleum about a coating for the little stopper last year, and they said that paint would flake, but this might surprise even them. You'll have to let us know in a year how it holds up. Looks lovely!

    1. I know, I'm so glad too! No chips yet, but I bet it would hurt to sand it down first, and I did a few extra coats too ;)

  5. I cant believe how different the taps look painted black. It seems to be a trend in tapware now too, black or white instead of silver. Looks great :)

    1. Well so far so good. If it does chip I plan on spraying the paint on a paper plate and then touching it up that way.

  17. Cheap Taps are one of the necessary things needed in a home. All bathrooms must have Waterfall Taps; there is no bath space without them. These Kitchen Sink Taps help to control the free out flow of water, and even do much more these days www.cheaptap.co.uk/

  18. What a fantastic look. I have never thought about doing that. Ours are starting to look pretty rough so I was about to go pick up a new faucet. This has me thinking that maybe I could save a bunch of money by taking it out and cleaning it very well and then spraying it. It makes it look new.

  22. The people who really gave me more confidence about trying spraying were those people who I followed on Facebook and Instagram.  Sydney Spray Painting

  23. Small items are great for transferring bathroom ideas, but these need to go last in the bathroom remodel. Remember your bathroom ideas and design scheme, don't buy items that won't fit in.http://www.easeofmobility.com/best-mobility-ramp-guide/
