Re-Find Living - Bathroom Vanity

10:20 AM

We're still settling in, 95% done with the store, still working the back room and bathroom areas.  But I'd love to share our new bathroom vanity.

We started with a beautiful antique 3-drawer dresser.

Here it is in all its peeling veneer glory!  The top had 1/2 of its veneer peeled off already.  This is a perfect Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan project.

We started with painting the vanity Chalk Paint® in Coco.  This is a great warm velvety color.

Then we painted the body of the dresser in Florence. A great turquoise color that will brighten up the room.

Remember those drawers with peeling veneers?  
Rather than repairing them which would include glue, sanding, and putty, I decided to just let them be part of the history of the piece.  

 I then used a fun Royal Design Studio stencil with gilding wax.

Here it is almost done.  

It wasn't quite as deep as we needed for our LARGE sink, so a larger top piece was cut, placing the faucet behind the vanity.  A little unorthodox as the contractor said, but pretty clever.

I'll post more pictures in 2-weeks when the whole bathroom is done.  I have lots of clever ideas!

Hope you're inspired.
