Funny how things make a full circle!
Fifteen years ago my precious niece was born. (Remember my post of her here.) My sister eventually turned her nursery into a big girl room. She wanted something different and found two beautiful antique pieces. One was a small wardrobe and the other was a vanity.
She wanted my help with her project.We stained it with green and white washed over that. I then hand painted little flowers on the front of the drawers.
As the years went on the little vanity took some abuse. She was very worn and my sister sent it to the garage.
Till the other day....
She gave me the vanity to redo again. Yes gave! This time it is mine for the store. (Hurray! Good sis!)
It came like this. Taken apart for new life.
The drawers are dove-tailed and very sturdy. The hardware is original and beautiful with a white wash to show off the details. They will stay.
The mirror is in perfect condition!
I decided to keep the green/grey drawers and brighten the outer piece up. I painted it with Martha Stewart's Ducks Egg.
Over the years the color faded to an almost greyish hue. I didn't have the heart to paint over everything. I wanted some of the story to shine through. I left the drawers as they were. I distressed them more though. Am I too sentimental?
I sanded it more and stained over everything.
Love the scalloped edge!
I can't wait to see it with the mirror attached. I will update when I set it up at the store so you can see the real finished product!
It is just waiting for some vintage bottles to adorn the top.
I think I have a project to do!
Let me know what you think!
I never get tired of saying Thank You!!!
No I haven't forgot!
I am just thinking......Coming soon..... a Giveaway
