Huntley Art Deco 3/4 Vanity Redo


I found this vanity at a Garage sale. There were many, many beautiful pieces of furniture
at this garage, which were way under priced, yet still out of my budget...:(
But this baby, she WAS in my price range, and she needed my help.


First I got to sanding her down. She had lots of damage that you can see how I repaired in my previous post.


I took the mirror off.

Then I got to priming.....whew!!! That was a doozy....



Then the funky cool brass handles needed some serious help.
I had thought about polishing them, but really didn't want that color with the color I chose for the vanity.



So I picked RUST-OLEUM'S hammered copper.
It was going to go so well with the color I had picked.



I chose a Ralph Lauren color that I had painted my armoire in my living room with a couple years ago.
Its espresso black. Its so rich and warm.

Then I got to distressing and finishing with lacquer.



I am absolutely in love with how she turned out.


Its another piece of furniture that my 2 oldest girls have threatened to confiscate..:) (Please don't mind the messy garage..:))
Have a BEAUTIFUL day.!!

Wish I knew you way back when we were selling my Grandpa's furniture and then my mom-in-law's stuff. You could have picked up some neat stuff for next to nothing, and I would have had the joy of seeing it brought back to life.

I always check people's curbside trash when I drive by just in case I see something I can pick up for you.

Lovely. Much much much better! I love how big a difference a little love does to a piece. Great job.

Oh she is so curvy, I love it. Please tell me you painted the grass around her. I always do that and my husband just loves our multi-colored lawn!
