You can spend a pretty penny replacing your old bathroom faucets, but luckily, you don’t have to. In the following tutorial, we’ll show you how you can paint those bathroom faucets to give them a fresh, new look that won’t break the bank.
Materials You’ll Need
- Tools to remove the faucets
- 3M sanding block
- Painter’s tape
- Rustoleum primer
- Spray paint
- High-gloss lacquer
Step 1: Sand The Faucets
Remove the faucets from the sink and use a 3M sanding block to sand them well.
Step 2: Tape The Faucets
Wash and dry the faucets to remove the sanding dust and then tape them to keep paint off areas that don’t need paint. Make sure the handles are in the closed position to keep dried paint from interfering with their on/off operation.
Step 3: Prime
Use the Rustoleum primer to spray each faucet with a few light coats. Allow each coat to dry completely before adding another one.
Step 4: Paint
Using the spray paint color of your choice, apply a few light, even coats to the completely dry primed faucets. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next one.
Step 5: Add The Shine
To finish your freshly painted faucets, apply a coat or two of high-gloss lacquer to seal and add shine. Allow the faucets to cure for at least two weeks before re-installing them.
That’s all there is to it. You’ve just given your bathroom faucets a fresh new look without spending a ton of cash to do so!
