Gold-Dipped Vanity

September 16, 2017

When I saw the unique style of this vanity/ desk, I had various visions running through my head of what I could do to give it new life!  But I was in a little bit of a "back up" with custom orders, so it sat amongst my stash of pieces to be revived for quite some time.


When I finally was able to give it the attention it needed, my vision had changed --- this little lovely had something much more glamorous in store!!



Have any of you seen the Gold-dipped furniture pieces?  They are so pretty and with these curvy legs, I thought this piece was the perfect candidate!! I chose our Wise Owl Restful for a nice serene hue



 and Modern Master's Pale Gold to GLAM IT UP!!





 I taped off the legs of the vanity to create the crisp lines and repainted the gold on the bottom part of the legs.  I also did a wet distressing on the Restful to reveal the beautiful gold beneath!


I sealed the vanity with General Finishes High Performance Topcoat


 I found the Thomasville stool, and although it was in nearly pristine condition, the top had a few spots.  So I used my Wise Owl Antique Villa on the fabric! 


YES! You can paint fabric with our paints and it does NOT feel crunchy!!! 


 I sprayed the surface really well with water, painted the Antique Villa on it, and sealed with our Clear Wax.  Easy, easy, easy!!





I replaced the cheap and brassy hardware with some new (and much better quality) hardware that I spruced up a little to get it to match  to the look I wanted. 












WOW, she so pretty now!!!  Perfect for that corner in a dressing room or bedroom!
