Almost Forgotten Outdated Vanity Makover

Hitting Replay on a favorite Makeover and THANKFUL there is no SNOW in sight!
Welcome back my Beauties.
Now as you know I do a LOT Of makeovers.
I do so many makeovers that sometimes they get FORGOTTEN.
Kind of like this little number that I did and loved.
It sold in the first two days in the booth and I think because it sold so fast 
I forgot to show the makeover.
Plus I did this makeover back in JULY...of 2015!!! 
(you will notice the nice lush colors and green of everything; in stark contrast to our March 1st snow storm that we are experiencing right now in Michigan)

So this is how I bought it.
I thought it was just a nice light stained vanity upon buying it at the thrift shop.
I thought; maybe I will put some hardware on it and clean it up and it will be just fine.

But when I got it home in good lighting I discovered that this wasn't in fact stain, but brown paint finished to look like stain. You could see the paint flecking off the top here.

So I decided to update it with a coat of General Finishes Seagull Gray Milk Paint
After 2 coats I lightly distressed around the edges to give it a time worn look, and sealed it with General finishes Satin finish.
Plus since the piece was missing the drawer hardware I decided to add these Vintage green glass knobs to the drawer fronts.
I loved how the gray and the green went together.

I also left the original gold edging peeking through to add detail to the piece.

I loved how it turned out and I can't believe I almost forgot to show you guys.
I think all the snow is starting to pack between my ears.
I need some warm sunshine to melt that up!
I hope you enjoyed this latest makeover.
Until next time have a hopefully WARM and Beautiful day!.
