Antique Vanity Make Over

Posted in Chef, My Work, refinished, Tools, Wilbur Cox Jr., Woodworking with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 26, 2015 by wilburcoxjr

This vanity was in the gentleman’s family that I bought it from since the 1920s.  I completely restored it.  Original mirror, hardware, and bench.  Completely hand painted and antiqued by yours truly.  This was given to @bmoremelloyello for Christmas because I wanted to make her something as beautiful as she is.  Originally it was all dark brown antique walnut number 700.  Because it was a secret Christmas gift, I couldn’t take any before shots for fear that my lady may find them in my phone.  Here is the finished after shot still in the family shop.  Merry Christmas all.
