A Daughter's Gift

A lady contacted me after seeing my painted furniture online about painting a piece that had been in her family.  Her idea was to fix it up and pass it along to her daughter & present it to her in its new state as an adorable birthday gift in March.  Her daughter is quite small now but wanted to keep the vanity simple and classic in a Shabby-Chic style so that it will be a piece that she'll cherish at any age. I delightfully took on the project  and this is how it turned out! 
Thanks, Heather. Happy Birthday Savannah!

I used a classic Antique White color & buffed in a French Wax finish for a subtle shine.  Some of its color from oils & stains came through which added a nice Vintage Patina to the over-all look. I also added 4 new sparkling crystal knobs giving this old girl some new beauty.

Some gentle sanding & chipping added to the journey that this piece speaks.

Heather asked about replacing the mirrors which I recommended against.  The nice beveled edge and the silver antiquing was only earned through time which gave dignity & aged-charm to this old girl's new life and merely reflected of time's past.

Lettering in "Love" was added to this vanity as a subtle reminder & message of it's past and future.
