It’s Zinsser’s Bullseye 1-2-3 water-based primer (blue label), and it’s an awesome primer for use on laminate furniture.

When the sides and edges are primed, use a foam roller designed specifically for doors and cabinets to coat the MDF faces with primer.

If there are minor imperfections in the sizing, consider the angle that will be least visible (e.g., on the bottom), and let that match-up bear the bulk of the difference.

This nail was a little on the deep side and called for a minor pressure adjustment.

Take care, when you’re nailing the MDF onto your doors and drawers, that you follow the footrpint of the protruding pattern on your original door and drawer faces – in other words, nail down in the same places that you used Liquid Nails. After your door and drawer faces are glued and nailed down, it’s time to caulk.

I found 1/4″ to be the best option for this vanity.

Flip over and attach your MDF board to the drawer face, taking care to align it perfectly all the way around the MDF board.

But making a few subtle changes (e.g., flat-faced cabinets and drawers, fresh paint, and new tasteful hardware) will have a huge impact on the overall updated feel of your bathroom space.

The first step in this vanity updating process is re-facing your cabinet doors and drawers.

This keeps most of the paint contained on the surface to be painted and, as a result, provides a more efficient painting method.

After painting a section, go back in a few minutes and check for any drips.

In the case of this example, measurements were taken on the cabinet and drawers right before the edges started rounding.

The thickness is up to you, of course, but if your cabinet doors and drawer fronts are already relatively thick, your best bet is to go as thin as possible for the new faces while still providing sufficient sturdiness.

This is particularly important since you’ve just primed your first coat, and any bumps and drips at this point will only be built upon as you add more coats of primer and paint. This second coat is particularly important for laminate pieces, as the primer provides the critical paint-to-laminate bond.
