I'm not a big fan of art deco and I'm not a big fan of two-toned furniture. So, why did I buy an art deco vanity and paint it two-toned you ask? I have no idea, but I love it! First of all, I was so happy when I started sanding the top and discovered it was wood and not veneer. Yea! Second of all, when I started painting it I realized it had more detail then I thought because it was hidden in all that different toned wood. Yea! Like I said, I usually don't really like a piece of furniture in two different colors, so I kept the body of this one a light grayish green and the drawers a crisp white, so there wasn't too much contrast--what can I say? I'm not the kind of girl that jumps right into cold water either, it's one toe at a time people....Anyway--I really do love this piece and the little vanity chair was a find, too!
It makes me smile to think of the woman who reupholstered this and what she thought of her "project" when she was done. I wonder if she jumped up and down like I do? :)
These drawers remind me of bead board. <3
Love the chippy look on this.
The top on this desk is gorgeous. I left some of the old marks in it just because I love the character it gives it.
Searched high and low for a fabric I could even tolerate and that would go with this color. I came back to this one--so glad I did. Although figuring out how to recover the seat has been a big ol' pain in the neck. It took me longer to do that than it did to paint the whole darn thing!
