Today I’m participating in another edition of the Best of Farmhouse Friends blog hop, and I couldn’t be more excited to share my project with you!
Pardon the before picture; I apparently added arrows to it a long time ago to indicate where I wanted to paint, and I couldn’t find the original 🙂
Fast forward about a year, and let’s just say I made some not-so-good choices about how and where to store this piece. In the middle of winter. While I visited my family for the holidays. The end result was that I had to end up removing a lot more of the veneer than I’d originally planned.
There are no pics of that part – I was too busy freaking out 🙂
I decided on a classic, neutral color scheme for the vanity to give it a bit of farmhouse style. First, I applied a base coat of General Finishes Milk Paint in Linen. In the places where I’d left the original veneer, I decided to deepen the color with Gel Stain in Antique Walnut, one of my new favorite colors.
Fun fact: I have yet to use this glaze as an actual glaze 🙂
If you’ve been keeping track, that’s a grand total of seven General Finishes products on one piece! A record for me for sure 🙂
Here’s how it all came together!
Thankfully, I was able to find fabric that coordinated perfectly the accents and style of the vanity, and used it to upholstered a matching stool.
