Winner! Ladies Vanity

By Furniture Art Studio in Toledo, OH.

This beautiful vanity was lightly sanded with 180 then 220 grit sandpaper. The beautiful burl wood top was then stained with GF dye stain in Amber.

I needed to add some extra oomph to the front of the drawer and mirror so using Artisan Enhancements VP Antico I did a raised stenciling effect. After it was completely dry I lightly sanded the stencil to knock down any rough edges. 

I used Wise Owl paints in Weathervane, Bowie, Smokey Quartz and Begonia  I sanded the paint doing a very light distress here and there.  

I then took a very small artists brush and "painted" the wood trim with GF dye stain in Amber letting the stain run and drip to create a beautiful green watercolor effect. 

The burl wood top was finished with three coats of GF wipe on urethane in satin. 

The rest of the vanity was finished with 2 coats of GF high performance top coat in flat. 

Dye stain brings out the layers and depth of the beautiful burl wood!
