From Drab to Glam - It's All About Vanity

Finally.....a piece of furniture completed and a post done!  Whew.....I love doing the Vintage Markets...but I have been slightly overwhelmed this past month after having three on our plate.  Not to mention, we also have a new second shop location and possibly going to a third....more on that at a later time!  Nonetheless, I am working hard and getting it done!
 
On to my latest project that I just finished today!  In the beginning, she was very ho-hum and quite frankly, not so pretty.  The finish was bad and refinishing all those nooks and crannies was not on my "want to do" list.  But, I'm going to be honest...I totally bought her to paint.
 
 
Do you blame me?  Look at her now!
 

I added a little surprise with stripes in the cubby part.
 

I painted her with homemade "chalk-like" paint in Linen White and added at touch of glam by using one of my favorite paints...Modern Masters in Warm Silver on the top, details and feet.
 
A girl like this has to have sparkling jewelry...these gorgeous knobs were found at Hobby Lobby (where else?).
 
 
She is now fit for a glamorous starlet!  This beauty will be available at the Vintage Frame of Mind show this weekend in Courtland, Virginia.  Hope to see you there!
 
'til next time!
