Aside from a bit of tweaking on the back, which I will wrap up as soon as I finish a custom order, it is ready to grace your space!
Painted in ivory chalk paint, I meticulously waxed in clear, dark and white, wanting to portray the antiqueness of it through the use of the dark wax, but keep it bright and light with the white wax layered over it. I also applied two coats of polycrylic to the three top surfaces before any waxing. The original wooden pulls are painted in a teal and soft aqua chalk paint and I added the center knobs. They were given the same waxing techniques. I lined the drawers with beautiful toile material which coordinates perfectly with the beige, cream and teal tones.
This vanity, though it put me through the wringer design-wise, has been a blast to work on. The craftsmanship is outstanding and I just loved watching it come back to a fresh life as such a fine piece deserves. Thanks for your patience on this one, I know it took a while, but I wanted to do it justice because in its simplicity there is great charm and character.
The screws to mount the mirror are not down because I do not want to keep undoing and redoing them. So for now it is only set in place.
