Back when I was in high school my parents bought me a vanity. It came with a mirror that screwed into the back as well as a bench. I really loved using it. I would sit in front of it every day when I would get ready in the mornings. As I have gotten older I stopped using it though. I still like the table so I decided to give it a makeover so that it can still be in my home.
I realized that the handle on this piece was not screwed in from the drawer. I actually had pry it off. That wasn’t so fun.
I of course went to my go to paint, Annie Sloan chalk paint, for this project. I used Pure White for the bottom and Antibes Green for the top. This was my first project using Antibes Green and I have to say that after I painted the top I got really really scared. It did not look anything like what I was envisioning.
I then proceeded to paint the bottom half white and still I was not convinced it would turn out good.
I applied the clear wax first and then followed up with the dark wax. Can I just say that the dark wax solves everything. I can not believe the difference that the dark wax made. The top of this table is the exact color that I was hopping to get. I love it.
I am yet to drill a hole and add a nob. I was thinking maybe a green knob to match the top. For now I will be on the hunt to find the perfect one
. I am really happy with how it turned out.
