In my small powder room the vanity that is original to our house built in the seventies had been painted white. The counter top was tiled in black granite with a new sink and faucet by my son. I decided to paint it a matte black to match the tile. I really like the way it came out. I plan to add new handles to match the satin nickle faucet.
