Four Drawer Vanity with Round Mirror. Two Tone Finish with Stained Top and Deep Teal Paint

By Virginia Aiello, Co-Owner and Furniture Designer at Two Old Souls in Wake Forest, NC.

This fantastic vanity received a custom-mixed coat of deep blue-green, created by mixing General Finishes Klein Blue with Emerald Milk Paint. To add depth and tone down the color, a wash of thinned Lamp Black was brushed on in sections and wiped off, deeping the color and shadowing edges. The painted portions were protected with High Performance Topcoat in satin.  The top and upper drawers of the vanity were sanded down to the raw wood and given a coat of Nutmeg Gel stain then protected with Arm-R-Seal in Satin. Drawers were lined with a complementary and very glam floral paper.
