Antique Vanity Refinished in French Vanilla


I found this beautiful little vanity for a steal and refinished it in French Vanilla by Sherwin Williams. It's a beauty! You can see the details on my blog. http://createinspireme.blogspot.com/2013/06/vanity-in-french-vanilla.html

    What did you use to distress the details? I have a recently purchased vanity that I would like to do same color and look. It currently has a dark blue paint over a rust color(?). Please advise

    Thank you,
