White Vanity


I found this vanity at a thrift store many months ago and decided it was time to make it white.  
Before:



I first painted it  in a soft blue, but did not like it so I then painted it white hoping that when I distressed the white some of the blue would show through. I mixed up home-made chalk paint in Garlic Glove by Benjamin Moore and got to painting. . I was lucky and it did! I distressed the vanity and then sealed it with AS clear wax and added some new knobs. 




You can see some of the blue peeking through


Love the details-even if I forgot to close the drawer all the way-LOL! 



Gorgeous legs! 



Who doesn't like tarnished silver?

  2. I think white was a great choice! It looks really pretty. And those flowers in the silver pitcher are gorgeous! I agree that it would be perfect for a girl's room.
