"SPRINGTIME IN PARIS" 80'S Vanity turned Vintage Shabby French

Good Morning my Beauties. 
I have a fun and Frenchy Makeover for you today!

I picked up this cute little vanity at a the local thrift shop.
It was cute with the little round bench but it was missing the back 
part. I had the perfect Idea.

I had a board out in my garage and I just happened to have 
my Rockwell BladeRunner X2 that I have been itching to try out.
I measured my board and used my saw which cut like butter to get the perfect size.
I screwed it into the back and was ready to get painting
I knew I was gonna do a vintage french feel so I went with Maison Blanche
Jolie Blonde for my first coat.
I put on the first coat and waited for it to dry.
Next up it was time for my FAVORITE.
Maison Blanche La Chaux
in Printemps.
The Beauty of the Maison Blanche French Lime paint,
is that it is a  a traditional Lime Paint made of pure, European Lime, mixed with natural pigments. The result is a eco-friendly, zero VOC paint product made with minimally processed natural ingredients that will allow you to turn your walls into art and to paint furniture with stunning results.

It is highly alkaline, so it's naturally resistant to fungus and mold as well as being anti-bacterial. This feature makes it ideal for bathrooms, kitchens and children's rooms. 

La Chaux is more textural than chalk based paints. Lime Paints have been used for over seven thousand years and have even been found applied to the insides of pyramids! This is a very traditional European product and gives the look of multiple layers of paint with only one coat.  I think you will see in the post what I am talking about.
 After the La Chaux dried I finished it off with the Vintage clear wax.
Once dried I buffed it to a beautiful finish.
I also recovered the dirty old cream seat with
this adorable gold and pink fabric.
In order to bring it all together I sprayed the original hardware with 

I think you will agree it pulled the whole thing together.

I love how you can see the blonde jolie peaking through the printems,
accented by the gold hardware.

Now the only real difficulty.
Trying to decide if I keep or sell.
