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!
