I was thrilled when I found this elegant vanity at a yard sale. I love the kidney shape and the carved details on the drawer fronts.
The finish on the top was damaged and scratched, so I filled the top with wood filler and sanded it smooth before painting.
For this special piece of furniture, I chose one of my favorite colors of Chalk Paint: Country Grey. Country Grey is one of the colors I picked when I placed my very first Chalk Paint order, via the internet, back in June of 2011. Since then, my love for this sophisticated neutral has never waned.
I wanted the carved, scrolling details to stand out, so I dry brushed Old White over them and then distressed, allowing the wood underneath to show through. To soften the contrast between the Country Grey and Old White, I went over them with a wash made by mixing half French Linen and half water.
