Vintage Vanity

This vintage vanity with curved drawers has been painted in ASCP in French Linen, lightly distressed, and sealed with clear wax.  The top has been refinished in dark walnut and the inside of the drawers painted in Louis Blue.  I found it in a thrift store and it was in great shape with the original hardware.  The mirror is also in excellent condition and ready to hang.

 Someone had refinished it in maybe mahogany with a very glossy topcoat.

  6. Stephanie,

    The desk and mirror in French Linen are beautiful. And the curves and detail of the desk make it that much more special. Also, refinishing the top is such a nice tounch! Well done!


  7. I have that desk and mirror. It was my parents. Did you have to prime it so that the Mahogany didn't bleed through?

  8. This is just gorgeous! What brand of paint did you use for the top and did you have to strip/sand? Thank you
