Wowza – has it been cold! Way too cold to paint in my garage or do anything except cuddle under my heated blanket and read a good book! Today it began to warm up and I was able to get out and find a few pieces at the thrift store (I’ll share soon!) but I do dislike going so long without sharing a fun before and after post with you. I delved into my archives and found this post originally published in 2014. It highlights General Finishes Persian Blue and the vanity is one of my favorites. Enjoy!
When I was sent a sample of General Finishes’ Persian Blue, I had try it. My husband is Iranian and my children all have Persian Blue eyes!
The lovely vanity that I purchased last weekend (Favorite Find Monday) was the perfect candidate for the paint. Sorry it seems that I am on a desk/vanity painting frenzy lately. This one had so much detail I couldn’t wait!
I’m sure you all remember the before pic from Monday.
Here is the after!
The desk is so long that to get a good close-up I had to take pictures of it in sections…
Can you believe the detail in this piece?
The wood top has been refinished and looks gorgeous with its golden striations. I plan on finishing the matching mirror, dresser and nightstand the same color. This piece is perfect as a desk as well as a vanity. For those who may claim that older furniture should not be painted, I believe this one proves that when done right, paint can enhance a piece and bring out its beauty and not mask it.Love my Persian Blue!
What an absolutely gorgeous piece! The details stand out beautifully and I’m a big fan of Persian Blue, too. Great job, Suzanne and stay warm!
Thanks, Laurie! I was really happy with the result on this piece!
