Antique Vanity in Warm White Milk Paint

Antique vanity extreme before and after

I have a love of antique vanities; I have many fond memories watching my Grandma at hers, When I find them I cannot pass them up ;)

I was using this mixable wood puttyon this French Provincial desk and had some left over so added it to the lower edge of the vanity where the veneer was missing.

I also used it to rebuild missing molding
It was the perfect medium to use and turned out really well.

Next it was on to the top to strip the old finish.






Power sanding removed all the original stain and varnish but there were these oil spots that now showed.

I wiped the top well with mineral spirits and let dry well and they were gone.

Chocolate Fusion Desk


I am not usually a brown painter, to get a rich brown I usually go with stain but Fusion Mineral Paint has a color called chocolate that looked yummy. I chose to try it on this solid maple desk.




I just bought some painters pyramids and love them for lifting a project off the ground with easy access to the base all around. Now it is time to paint with the luscious Fusion Mineral Paint chocolate color in 2 coats.


After the first coat, I wet distressed the edges to give some added character to the solid paint color


 I chose new silver brushed stainless steel pulls and knobs, perfect


And because it is a desk that will get lots of use on the top I added 3 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint wipe on tough coat with a wet rag to complete the transformation ...
