Latest Painted Vanity
Wanted to share with you this latest creation I painted this past week. I shouldn't say week, as it literally only took about 2 hours to complete! Seriously, with the quick drying and, virtually, no prep Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, this took no time at all.
I got this old vanity from a friend/customer who had had it since she was a little girl. To say it was special is an understatement...the history along with the petite details and curves make this a gem. Needless to say, it was old and tired and the wood veneer was coming off in places. Here's the easy steps I took to give it that layered, more modern look:
1. cleaned with Windex
2. full coat of Paris Grey Chalk Paint
3. after waiting roughly 1/2 hour (and helping customers in between), I sparingly painted on Old Violet Chalk Paint in various patches all over the piece. I then sprayed it with water in 2' ft sections and then dabbed with a paper towel; moving the darker paint in to certain places and removing some in others.
4.after that dried I then added a little Pure White Chalk Paint over some edges of the details
Tad-Da!!...so easy - you can try it too on your next piece!
