I have had this vanity for over a year now, I was holding off on painting it until I was 100% sure of what I wanted to do with it, as I think it is one of the pretty pieces I have purchased to date. I know that I paint quite a few of my pieces white, and I guess it comes as no real surprise that I also painted this piece white – but at the end of the day, I was just not brave enough to go with a bold colour on this piece. And would you not agree that the white looks just lovely?!!…..
If you had a choice to paint this vanity, what colour would you have gone with?
I distressed the vanity along the edges to give it a somewhat chippy look, and finished it off with two coats of a clear finish. You may not have noticed, but I ended up having to change the pulls on this piece as I could not get the original pulls back on it….I don’t know what was going wrong, but the screws would just not tighten into the original pulls (which was a shame as I REALLY like them….although I think the replacement pulls look just as nice on the vanity).
The mirror has a bit of patina to it, but would you not agree that it adds to it’s charm?
Don’t mind my messy kitchen!!….guess I should have cleaned it up before I took the picture below….I really need to learn how to ‘fog’ mirrors in my photographs (or I suppose just clean my kitchen before I take pictures of mirrors!!).
I painted this piece with my spray gun using Sherwin Williams Snowbound (which as you probably already know is my favourite white).
If anyone is interested, this pieces has been posted up for sale in my Shop, and should you have any questions about the vanity, please to not hesitate to contact me.
Have a great week!
