Tiffany Blue Vanity

I was at the Flea Market (as usual on a Friday) and I found this old beat up vanity that had so much potential.  I of course snatched it up and brought it home. 
Here is the before:
You can see the loveliness there under all the damage.  I mixed up a light Tiffany/Beachy Blue home made chalk paint and started to paint away.  

Ugly  but in a good way!

I like to mix up my own colors depending on what I am picturing in my head for a piece.  I thought of blue and making the vanity two-toned.  I like to get OOPSY paint from my local paint store ( they give it to me for free since I am in there all the time-ha ha.  They all know me by name and even know my go -to colors by heart and I love going in there).

I painted the vanity in my custom blue and then used a garlic glove white for the details.

The next step was to distress and wax with AS dark wax.

How can you not love these gorgeous legs with casters?

I added some crystal knobs from my stash
I  hand painted the edge trim with a little gold
I found a mirror that I had fixed up and antiqued
A local shop owner took this piece for her shop before I could even blink!


  1. And that same shop is going to sell it just as quickly. The ugly duckling is now a wonderful swan.

  2. You did a great job on a beautiful piece of furniture. Very classy. And tiffany blue is the color of my bedroom and kitchen. :) I like the color. :)

  3. That turned out so pretty. I like the price you pay for oops paint better than what I pay. lol They should know me by name at my store too.

  4. I think I would have had to keep it! It turned out beautifully!!

  5. So very pretty! Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
