This vintage vanity is lovely and I really enjoyed working on it.
My original plan for this makeover was to paint the body and swivel mirror — and have a stained top.
The top was badly scratched so unfortunately (or fortunately… because I really like how it all turned out!) while trying to get rid of some of the deeper scratches, I sanded through the veneer in a few spots.
Plan B. Paint. To stop any bleedthrough and seal the exposed wood veneer, I primed with two coats and then painted.
I am loving all this detail and this gorgeous Coffee Bean brown-black! I also painted the original hardware.
For many years I removed the mirror and disassembled the swivel stand to get a professional finish. I found a MUCH easier way. I leave the mirror in the frame while I paint. If a little paint gets on it the glass/mirror while I’m painting — no worries. Once the paint dries, I use a glass scraper to remove any paint on the mirror. It works amazing and saves me a ton of time.
I used Re-Design With Prima’s Cheetah Transfer to add some pattern to the drawers. It adds a touch of whimsy design while keeping it sleek and elegant.
For the top coat, I sprayed two coat of this Clear Coat for a perfect satin finish.
