Vanity in Louis Blue & Provence


This vanity was purchased from a thrift store and painted with a mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  I used approximately one part Louis Blue and two parts Provence, which mixed to a lovely pale turquoise.





The vanity was given a coat of Annie Sloan Soft Wax, buffed and distressed.


The hardware was sprayed with a light coat of Rustoleum Satin Nickel.


The drawers were lined with some decorative paper I had on hand; perfect match--I love when that happens.



Before.


After.

This vanity will go in the guest bedroom, which is also turning into my girl cave.

Thanks for visiting.

Beautiful color! Did you brush this or spray it? I'm trying to get brave enough to throw my chalk paint in the sprayer.
