Sweet Vanity Reveal

I grabbed this vanity/dressing table while picking up another item off Craigslist.  It was darling but in need of some love.
Halloween stuff 003
Try to look past the reflection and all the other misc. items that somehow made their way back into the garage.  Yikes!
I removed the original hardware to paint the vanity and decided to keep the hardware.  It really has great, unique detail.

I could not arrive at a color to paint her.  So I experimented with a mix of the Paris Grey and the Old White.  The result is a softer grey.
Halloween stuff 006
All done and delivered to my new space.
Vintage Restyled 2 003
Light distressing highlights the details.
The mirror was a mess.  Note to all: Duck Tape does not go on mirrors!  The owner wanted to close the mirrors for transport and used duck tape.  Oh boy!
Despite all the fancy cleaning products that promise to solve my problems, a good old fashion, inexpensive razor took it all right off!
Heritage Square Antique Mall – Customer Appreciation Sale - this Friday,      October 7, 6-10.  Vendors will be stocking up for the sale and will offer discounts.  Stop over to score some deals!

An amazing transformation, so much better. Glad to see you salvaged this beautiful piece. It has great bones and just needed some TLC.

I think you arrived at the perfect colour for this. It's just so soft and sweet... you did a great job.

It really is gorgeous. I like the softer grey, I also love Old White, am now using it to paint all the trim in my home.

You lucky lady...I envy you the dressing table you have restored. There was one in my husband's family, very similar, but was not up for grabs as it was being used by two bachelor relatives who inherited it from their mother...
You did a beautiful job on restoring yours. What a treasure. I have joined your followers list and picked up your blog button. I hope you will join me as well and grab my blog button as well. Look forward to knowing you. Hugs, Gayle.

Beautiful looking vanity. I have always wanted a vanity and never did get one. Now I have no room for one in our bedroom...this one would be perfect. Thanks for sharing.

I recently revamped a vanity as well! Very similar to yours, only I'm keeping mine! I love it...I still have to "shabby chic" it and am a little afraid.

Love how it turned out. I've come across similar vanities twice on CL and yet to be successful. Keeping my fingers crossed!
