Funny when a busy weekend ends, I look forward to the week days. The house is quite and I have time to get projects done. The joy of working from home.
I usually paint something because it is relaxing. I haven't even had time for that lately. So today I opened the blinds and let the sunshine in. Then....grabbed a paintbrush and some Annie Sloan decorative Chalk Paint.
The color Provence. Pure white for the details.
I have painted vanity's before this blue and yellow one was a favorite.
Most of my painted furniture goes up for sale. Some stay a little longer because I become attached. I never realized I have always wanted a vanity. Till now. After I purchase a new bedroom set, I began to paint the vanity and fell in love.
I hand painted it to give it my little touch. Something that fits me for my bedroom. I even put my monogram on it.

A monogram makes it personal. So are the rest of the details. Love details. I have done this before on a hand painted one here.
I added some bling with the crystal knobs. It added light to the room and shined in the corner. Perfect addition to the room.
I came up with a crazy pattern. The flourishes emulate the pattern on the rest of my furniture. It is not perfect. Crazy and not perfect....hmmmmmm sounds like me.
The mirror has a little of the painted detailing on the arch like the crowning of the piece.
I love that the color matched my baby picture. Yes that is me!
Definitely better than the before to me!
And if I decide I want something different......I just paint over it!
And if I decide to sell it.....I just paint over the monogram!
This is why I love paint. Never a mistake, always a good change!
Now I am trying to decide about distressing and using clear or dark wax.
What do you think?
Help a girl out!
UPDATE: I distressed and used clear wax. I think it works!
It is more subdued.
Thanks for reading!
