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!
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!
Here is the after!
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!
