This antique vanity was custom painted based on an inspirational photo. It now has a complete new updated look.

This is the customer's great grandmothers vanity. She remembers playing cards with her at it when a little girl. How sweet are those memories? So worth getting a piece reloved to fit your home decor.

The construction is so well made from solid wood again another huge reason to invest time and money into a makeover.

The first step was to take it all apart and scrub inside out and upside down to remove years of use. I use Dixie Belle white lightening cleaner in a bucket of soapy water, scrub with a brush then rinse clean with my hose.


The original finish has wear of course so to smooth it all I hand sand using Dixie Belle sanding sponges and old orbital sanding pads to smooth everything. Once done all was wiped again to remove the sanding dust.

I started with a base coat of  Dixie Belle Paint  in midnight sky. I brushed it on using the flat medium sized Dixie Belle synthetic brush.


Then a layer of antebellum blue, For the blue I used the Dixie Belle's oval brush . Having both brushes on the go at the same time along with my Fine Mist Spray Bottle makes blending easy.


Then it was on to the sides; blue over the black and blend.


To seal it all up with added durability Dixie Belle Gator Hide was applied with a damp Dixie Belle applicator sponge in two thin coats; 3 on the top.

It is so pretty!!
