I think this is my favorite makeover to date. This morning I sat in my formal living room to drink my coffee. I always keep the pieces I have for sale in there. I love these pieces so much I just enjoy looking at them! Unfortunately for me Turquoise doesn't fit into my decor. That alone is a great reason to redecorate :), but for now these have to go to the booth. So sad! Here is a before shot of the vanity ~
|This was the better piece of the two|
I painted with Behr Gem Turquoise. Once I had the dresser painted I almost repainted it a different color. The Gem Turquoise is like Disney Princess Turquoise with a heavy dose of neon. It was bright! Thankfully I went ahead with my distressing and black glaze before I made any hasty decisions. The glaze ( Ralph Lauren in Black Velvet) was the magic ticket. It toned that wild color down to the perfect antique turquoise shade.
Yummy distressing :):):)
Toile fabric in the drawers~
I like the dresser best with no mirror, but the mirror is beautiful as well
And the matching vanity~
