I almost don't want to say anything about this vanity. It really is one of those pieces that you only get your hands on once in a lifetime (although I pray that's not the case!). It's a beautiful piece and it was in very good condition (just some minor veneer issues on the inside panel).
I was so excited to get to work on it that I forgot to take a before! I can't believe I did that!
The wood was beautiful. It's made of mahogany, walnut, and maple. I wanted to keep as much of it as possible, but still help all that detail stand out.
I had a very hard time deciding what to do with it, so chose to keep it neutral.
The top was in such beautiful condition that I chose not to refinish it. I used Minwax Antique Oil to revive and protect it.
Same with these burled maple drawer fronts. Just a little bit of oil and they looked amazing. I also chose to keep the original hardware. I couldn't picture anything that would look more appropriate.
I also chose to keep the mirror frame natural and to contrast it by painting the spindles.
I painted the drawer fronts Hardware from Sherwin Williams and then painted the body and all the detail in my custom off white.
The feet are incredible and I glazed them to help the details pop.
She is so beautiful. Nuff said.
