I am so honored to be able to work on this vanity. It originally belonged to my client’s grandmother, so sentiment was a huge part of this makeover. (and you all know what a sentimental squish I am when it comes to furniture!)
The vanity has clean lines and is in great shape. The finish was crackling and was not the color that the client was looking for.
She wanted soft, fresh and feminine. We went back and forth on color options and decided that a soft blue accented with white hit just the right note. She wanted the original knobs to be replaced with glass to add to the feminine feel.
The blue tone we settled on is Benjamin Moore November Sky. It is the perfect shade to blend pretty and retro. The finish had to be sanded, primed and sealed to repair the crackling and prevent bleed through. Once painted, I sealed the entire piece with Minwax Polycrylic in Satin.
I am in love with the finished vanity. It is perfectly polished and feminine. As they say, there is nothing wrong with a little vanity.
