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.

Cut the door to size, sand it and refinish it.  Remove the old top of the coffee table.  Chalk paint the frame.  A few palet slats that were sanded and refinished. And this is what you end up with
