Antique Seven Drawer Vanity

This is one of most unique pieces I have acquired.  I loved the shape, the legs and the hardware!!!  I had to have it even tho a couple of the legs were broken and it was missing some of the wood trim.  Luckily they had a matching little table they sold me cheap because it was missing a leg – and both of it’s drawers.   It had all the trim I needed tho! Maybe when I run out of things to do I will make a little half table with a basket inside.

Here is the little table:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I decided to do it with chalk paint.  I am not patient enough to order it and wait for it to be shipped, so I made my own using Martha Stewart’s Heavy Cream flat paint and plaster of paris.  There are several recipes online if you google “recipe for chalk paint”.  I will look up the one I used and link to it later.

Chalk paint is perfect when it’s too hot to spray outside.  I put down plastic and painted in the house! It was lovely :) Since I live in Las Vegas, you will probably see a few more chalk painted pieces for the next couple months. :)
