A Fancy-pants Vanity

I've been putting off showing you this gorgeous vanity we painted at Vera's Daughter, because I wanted to wait until I could combine it with a tutorial for two color distress. 

But I can't make up my mind how I want to do that tutorial so, alas, this post will be tutorial-less.



I'm so ashamed.







But I must say . . .

this piece is good.


Really good.

Nothing to be ashamed of.


At. All.







 
The vanity is painted with one coat of Chalk Paint® in Primer Red. The top coat is
Chalk Paint® in Arles.  It is covered with a coat of Soft Wax and Dark Wax.






I did the wax on this piece just like I did it on the Coco Curio.


Can you believe the hardware on those drawers?





It's all fancy-pants and everything!






This was done for a client and boy was she happy!





I promise I will be working on a tutorial this week.


Have a great week!

This is quite lovely and I do wish for a tutorial. Where did the blue shadows around the edges come from? I am actually drooling over this desk.

I love ASCP Arles and I love the amazing job you did on this piece. I need you to come for a visit and help me with a piece I just painted. You have such a knack!

I know you didn't ask for my opinion so I'm just going to tell you what would be totally amazing (other than your painting skills and wit) a video tutorial. I learn so much in the way that you combine colors and to hear your voice while you're teaching us your style would be super awesome. Just saying. Hugs, Coco
