Well I finally did it. I finally finished a vanity that I had stored for about a year. There are many reasons NOT to store something that long before finishing it. Topping the list is the fact that ultimately something gets ruined or broken. R.I.P Mirror.
I decided on gold for this Vanity.
Most times when using a metallic paint, I like to tone down the brightness with a glaze. I had a glaze that I used for my kitchen cabinet doors already mixed and stored. It’s a great brown.
Now it’s a nice rich gold.
Add some great scrapbooking paper and modge podge.
Enter lonely, hideous, banged-up stool. This poor friendless fella was hiding in the dark corner of a Goodwill Store, ashamed, I’m sure of its dated clothing.
I took off fabric # 1 and was left with this peach material, but I ended up taking that off as well. Good thing I did. There was a thick layer of dust under it. I actually stripped it to the bare wood underneath. Oh, and don’t forget to add batting to cover the foam piece.
Get ready for a LOT of after shots.. Accessories will probably be different in every picture.
Notice the aging of the paper on the drawer fronts.
I decided to do nothing but clean the handles as I thought they were perfect for the piece just as they were.
Each drawer was lined with paper.
For the middle section, I made a collage of all the paper I used for the drawer fronts and then added a piece of glass for protection.
My mother gave this little hand mirror to me. She has had it for as long as I can remember. It’s just perfect for this vanity.
