Winner! Two Tone Vanity

By Kelli Brown in Franklin, KY.

Winning Category

This beautiful vanity was stripped down to her bare wood to free her of all the dirt and grime and imperfections. Once prepped, the drawers and top were stained with Early American by Minwax and sealed with a Minwax Satin finish polyurethane. The body and mirror of this piece have three coats of General Finish’s milk paint in Basil. All original hardware was replaced due to being damaged or missing. This piece had been given up on but I saw she still had life. I don’t do this for a living but I am very proud of my self taught techniques and hope to gain more talent along the way.
