Light It Up

By The Refurbished Heart, Owner & Artist at The Refurbished Heart - Furniture Restoration & Design in Highlands, TX.

I restored this amazing vanity that was originally painted green. First step was stripping it, sanding it, cleaning it and then painting! I predrilled holes and added vanity lights in the two areas were side mirrors were originally. Painted it black while adding light distressing throughout. Sealed it with some annie sloan wax to enrich the colors and then buffed it out with a high speed buffer. Turned out pretty neat and look at that burl wood they had painted!
