I am not a person that thinks everything has to be painted Sometimes, a piece looks better re stained, nut sometimes it needs to be painted. This vanity I had for my bedroom is one of those that I did not really want to paint, but I felt like I had to. There was some damage to it that could not be fixed. So when I heard about March's Fab Furniture Flip contest I got really excited. This month sponsor is Pure And Original paint company. I have been wanting to try it for a while because I have heard great things.
This is one of the spots that was badly damages. I had to sand it down really well, but it still damaged the wood beyond repair.
I got two really pretty colors, a dark gray called Ground Pepper and a beautiful blue called Atria. They both matched the colors in painting that hangs over my bed. I was very excited to get started. However, in a span of a week I totaled my car and banged my knee up, then my new car got broken into, and lastly I got Bronchitis. So needless to say it took a lot longer to get it done then I had planned on.I left the very pretty wood as in on the drawers, I felt like it added an elegance to it. Furniture from the art deco era always have pretty wood grain on them, so I showcased that by not painting them. I left the original knobs too, because they are bakelight (im not entirely sure how to spell that, lol).I like how it turned out, its simple yet still very pretty and elegant.
